Summary, in English

Intramyocellular triglyceride is an important energy store which is related to insulin resistance. Mobilization of fatty acids from this pool is probably regulated by hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL), which has recently been shown to exist in muscle and to be activated by epinephrine via PKA and by contractions via PKC and ERK. 5' AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is an intracellular fuel gauge which regulates metabolism. In this Study we incubated rat soleus Muscle to investigate if AMPK influences HSL during 5 min of repeated tetanic contractions. An eightfold increase in AMPK activity was accompanied by a 2.5-fold increase in phosphorylation of the AMPK-site Ser(565) in HSL (p < 0.05). Inhibition of PKC by Calphostin C abolished the contraction-mediated HSL activation while HSL-Ser(565) phosphorylation was not reduced. The study indicates that during contractions AMPK phosphorylates HSL in Ser(565), but this phosphorylation is not directly responsible for the contraction-induced activation of HSL.
