AdipoR1 and AdipoR2 are newly discovered members of the huge family of seven-transmembrane receptors, but both receptors are structurally and functionally different from G-protein-coupled receptors. Little is known about the oligomerization of the AdipoRs. Here, we show the presence of endogenous AdipoR1 dimers in various cell lines and human muscle tissue.(More)
Several transcription factors play a role in the alteration of gene expression that occurs during cancer metastasis. Twist expression has been shown to be associated with the hallmarks of the metastatic process, as well as poor prognosis and drug resistance in many tumor types. However, primarily due to their location within the cell and the lack of a(More)
Adiponectin is an adipokine with anti-atherogenic, anti-diabetic and insulin sensitizing properties. Its effects on energy homeostasis, glucose and lipid metabolism are mediated by two ubiquitously expressed seven-transmembrane receptors, AdipoR1 and -R2. With the exception of APPL1 and RACK1, no intracellular binding partners of adiponectin receptors are(More)
