 Postoperative Cognitive Dysfunction Involved With AMPK and Inflammatory Mediators

Neuronal apoptosis resulting from post-surgery inflammation, phosphorylation of tau protein and accumulation of amyloid is associated with postoperative cognitive dysfunction. Adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK) can be involved in anti-inflammation, neuronal repair and anti-inflammation of the body through different downstream proteins and pathways.

In addition, the activation of AMPK regulates tau protein phosphorylation and reduces amyloidogenesis in neurons. Yanlin Bi and co-workers from the Affiliated Qianfoshan Hospital of Shandong University in China found that inflammatory cytokines and AMPK changed remarkably in the hippocampus of postoperative cognitive dysfunction rats.
