We recently identified adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK) as a novel inducer of heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) and surprisingly found that compound C (6-[4-(2-piperidin-1-yl-ethoxy)-phenyl]3-pyridin-4-yl-pyrazolo[1,5-a] pyrimidine), a cell-permeable inhibitor of AMPK, could also elevate HO-1 suggesting other AMPK-independent actions for this agent. In this study, we investigated the biochemical mechanism by which compound C stimulates HO-1 expression in human endothelial cells (ECs) and determin…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
