MCL-1 comes to the rescue: AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is an ancient energy sensor that mediates the beneficial effects of ischemic pre-conditioning. This study identifies the anti-apoptotic, mitochondrial protein, MCL-1 as a key effector of AMPK-mediated preconditioning in neurons, and demonstrates that MCL-1 not only controls the level of apoptosis, but also acutely regulates neuronal Ca2+ homoestasis.
