Cardiac remodelling is generally accepted as a critical process in the progression of heart failure. Myocyte hypertrophy,inflammatory responses and cardiac fibrosis are the main pathological changes associated with cardiac remodelling.AMP-activated protein kinase(AMPK) is known as an energy sensor and a regulator of cardiac metabolism under normal and ischaemic conditions. Additionally, AMPK has been shown to play roles in cardiac remodelling extending well beyond metabolic regulation. In this review, we discuss the currently defined roles of AMPK in cardiac remodelling and summarize the effects of AMPK on cardiac hypertrophy, inflammatory responses and fibrosis and the molecular mechanisms underlying these effects. In addition, we discuss some pharmacological activators of AMPK that are promising treatments for cardiac remodelling.
