CAS 2627-69-2 AICAR
Chemical Name:5-Aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide ribonucleotide
AICAR is a peptide, which is an intermediate within the generation of inosine monophosphate and directly related to metabolic regulation. The most important mechanism that AICAR is known for is its ability to block enzymes both in intracellular and extracellular levels, which, in turn, allows for an accelerated stimulation of glucose uptake and increase protein kinases in skeletal muscle tissue. These two functions allow for more energy conversion, which helps burn fat and also sustain output in activity. This is what scientists and athletes/bodybuilders are interested in.
AMP-activated Protein Kinase
AICAR’s principal mechanism of action is activation of AMPK (AMP-activated protein kinase.) Activating AMPK, therefore, causes the same cellular machinery (so to speak) to be turned on as if the cell were energy deprived, for example from intensive exercise, or from low caloric intake.
