Hormonal regulation of adiponectin gene expression in 3T3-L1 adipocytes.
Recently, it has been demonstrated that the fat-derived protein adiponectin is an important insulin-sensitizing adipocytokine which is downregulated in insulin resistance and obesity andExpand

Adiponectin gene expression is inhibited by β‐adrenergic stimulation via protein kinase A in 3T3‐L1 adipocytes
Recently, it has been shown that the fat‐derived factor adiponectin is downregulated in insulin resistance and obesity and that replenishment of this adipocytokine reverses insulin resistance inExpand
