Abstract

Background: OGT and AMPK collectively target hundreds of intracellular signaling processes, but no study has addressed whether they regulate each other. Results: AMPK activity mediates the substrate selectivity of OGT, and O-GlcNAcylation modulates the activity of AMPK. Conclusion: There is significant cross-talk between the O-GlcNAc and AMPK systems. Significance: OGT and AMPK may synergistically regulate numerous nutrient-sensitive processes essential for life.
