Adenosine 5’-monophosphate activated protein kinase (AMPK) is a key enzymatic protein involved in linking the energy sensing to the many metabolic pathways and that has been recently shown to control male gonad and spermatozoa functions. It is indeed involved in the regulation of semen quality through its action on the proliferation of testicular somatic cells on spermatozoa motility and acrosome reaction.
