The pleiotropic liver kinase B1 (LKB1) controls metabolism, cell polarity, and proliferation in an apparently cell- and context-specific manner. A recent study in Cell Reports has demonstrated that LKB1 is essential to maintain the characteristic quiescence of the liver and to secure genomic integrity during liver regeneration independently of AMPK
