Core Tip We showed that liver kinase (LK)B1 acts as the upstream regulator of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) and participates in gluconeogenesis. AMPK phosphorylation triggers CREB-regulated transcription co-activator (TORC)2 phosphorylation, which results in the inhibition of the nuclear translocation of TORC2. Thus, gluconeogenesis is restrained. No previous studies have reported the molecular mechanisms of berberine reducing hyperglycemia via the inhibition of hepatic gluconeogenesis. We found that berberine upregulated protein expression of LKB1, AMPK, p-AMPK and p-TORC2. Moreover, we observed that berberine inhibited the translocation of TOCR2 into the cell nucleus.
