We thank F. Katsis for the preparation of antibodies and L. Macaulay at Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation Parkville, Victoria, Australia, for CaMKK beta expression constructs. We are most grateful to S. Gamblin and D. Carling and their colleagues at Medical Research Council National Institute of Medical Research and Hammersmith Hospital, respectively, for generously sharing with us the observation that ADP inhibited the dephosphorylation of AMPK by PP2c (30), which prompted us to test whether ADP also controlled the kinase kinase reaction. This work was supported by grants from the Australian Research Council, the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), and the Victorian Government Operational Infrastructure Support Scheme. B. E. K. is an NHMRC Fellow.
