Abstract

Cascade of youth? Resveratrol, the celebrated phytoalexin of red wine, was known to activate AMPK indirectly, but how this happened was unclear. In a paper recently published in Cell, S.-J. Park, J. H. Chung and co-workers identify the signalling cascade, which begins with the inhibition of phosphodiesterases, in particular PDE4. But questions remain, even while new perspectives open up.
