Caption: Injection of an AMPK activator (right) increased the number of apoptotic neurons (red) in the striatum of mice with Huntington’s disease (HD) compared to control cells (left). A new study in The Journal of Cell Biology describes how hyperactivation of AMPK promotes neurodegeneration in HD.
