Target Background

Adiponectin is a 244-amino acid protein secreted mainly by adipose tissue, but expression is also seen in osteoblasts, liver parenchyma cells, myocytes, epithelial cells, and placental tissue. The biological actions of adiponectin are directed through the receptors AdipoR1, AdipoR2 and T-cadherin. Serum levels of adiponectin decrease with obesity and are positively linked with insulin sensitivity. Low levels of this anti-inflammatory adipokine can produce a chronic state of low-grade inflammation which can lead to insulin resistance, diabetes, hypertension, and atherosclerosis.
