As noted by Andersen et al. (Nature Medicine), the sequencing of proximal zoonotic ancestors to SARS-CoV-2 has aided in the identification of alleles that may contribute to the virus’ virulence in humans.

AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) has attracted much attention for its key role in energy homeostasis. Three new papers providing structural information on mammalian and yeast AMPK homologs give insights into the binding of the regulatory nucleotides AMP and ATP and how mutations are associated with cardiac glycogen storage disorders.
