Chemical Adiponectin

Name Adiponectin
Equivalent Terms ACRP30 Protein | Adipocyte, C1q and Collagen Domain Containing Protein | Adipocyte Complement Related Protein 30 kDa | Adipocyte Complement-Related Protein 30-kDa | Adipose Most Abundant Gene Transcript 1 | apM 1 Protein | apM-1 Protein
Definition A 30-kDa COMPLEMENT C1Q-related protein, the most abundant gene product secreted by FAT CELLS of the white ADIPOSE TISSUE. Adiponectin modulates several physiological processes, such as metabolism of GLUCOSE and FATTY ACIDS, and immune responses. Decreased plasma adiponectin levels are associated with INSULIN RESISTANCE; TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS; OBESITY; and ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
