ATIC

A gene on chromosome 2q35 that encodes a bifunctional protein that catalyses the last two steps in purine biosynthesis.

Molecular pathology
ATIC mutation causes AICA-ribosiduria.

Further, pretreatment of MSCs with the AMPK activator, AICAR, increased AMPK phosphorylation and decreased LC3-II levels in common with that in cells treated with hinokitiol alone (Figure 6(a)).
Antemortem injection of HAT inhibitor II diminished AICAR induced an increase in postmortem glycolysis.

A close association exists between AMPK activity and exercise intolerance, as evidenced by increased exercise capacity in animals chronically treated with the AMPK activator, AICAR (5-aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide-1-[beta]-D-ribofuranoside) [39], and the decrease in exercise tolerance in AMPK[beta]2, AMPK[beta]1[beta]2, and AMPK[alpha]2 knockdown or knockout mice [22,24, 32].

Similarly, various AMPK agonists, including the AMPK mimetic AICAR, block AMPK deactivation and prevent SW-induced GVBD in nemerteans, whereas co-adding cAMP elevators overrides such blockage and restores GVBD (Fig.
