  • The mitochondria-derived peptide (MDP) MOTS-c promotes biosynthesis of the endogenous AMP analog AICAR and consequently AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK). It induces cellular and systemic glucose uptake and improves insulin sensitivity and has been shown to prevent diet-induced obesity (DIO) in mice.
  • This K14Q mutant of MOTS-c has been shown to be associated with exceptional longevity and may be interesting for aging research.
