Abstract

The fundamental task of maintaining energy balance is complex when nutrient levels are plentiful, but it becomes even more challenging when nutrients are dynamic or scarce. A recent Nature report delineates a role of the AMP kinase pathway in rationing energy stores for the long-term survival of Caenorhabditis elegans dauers (Narbonne and Roy, 2009).
