1 Using combined pharmacologic and genetic knockout approaches, we demonstrate that tamoxifen inhibits oxygen consumption via inhibition of mitochondrial complex I, resulting in an increase in the AMP/ATP ratio and activation of the AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) signaling pathway in vitro and in vivo AMPK in turn promotes glycolysis and alters fatty acid metabolism.
