5-Aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide ribonucleoside (AICAR) is an intermediate in the generation of inosine monophosphate. AICAR is an analogue of adenosine monophosphate (AMP) that is capable of stimulating AMP-dependent protein kinase (AMPK) activity. AICAR has been used clinically to treat and protect against cardiac ischemic injury. The drug was first used in the 1980s as a method to preserve blood flow to the heart during surgery. Currently, the drug has also been shown as a potential treatment for diabetes by increasing the metabolic activity of tissues by changing the physical composition of muscle.
AICAR is available for research needs. It is not accessible for human use and continues to be a popular research chemical. It should ideally be handled by professionals who are aware f the safety concerns and benefits that the product provides for research purposes.
