Cloning of adiponectin receptors that mediate antidiabetic metabolic effects
Corrigendum (2004)10.1038/nature03091Adiponectin (also known as 30-kDa adipocyte complement-related protein; Acrp30) is a hormone secreted by adipocytes that acts as an antidiabetic andExpand

Adiponectin stimulates glucose utilization and fatty-acid oxidation by activating AMP-activated protein kinase
Adiponectin (Ad) is a hormone secreted by adipocytes that regulates energy homeostasis and glucose and lipid metabolism. However, the signaling pathways that mediate the metabolic effects of AdExpand

Adiponectin and adiponectin receptors.
Metabolic syndrome is thought to result from obesity and obesity-linked insulin resistance. Obesity in adulthood is characterized by adipocyte hypertrophy. Adipose tissue participates in theExpand

The fat-derived hormone adiponectin reverses insulin resistance associated with both lipoatrophy and obesity
Adiponectin is an adipocyte-derived hormone. Recent genome-wide scans have mapped a susceptibility locus for type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome to chromosome 3q27, where the gene encodingExpand

Adiponectin and adiponectin receptors in insulin resistance, diabetes, and the metabolic syndrome.
Adiponectin is an adipokine that is specifically and abundantly expressed in adipose tissue and directly sensitizes the body to insulin. Hypoadiponectinemia, caused by interactions of genetic factorsExpand

Targeted disruption of AdipoR1 and AdipoR2 causes abrogation of adiponectin binding and metabolic actions
Adiponectin plays a central role as an antidiabetic and antiatherogenic adipokine. AdipoR1 and AdipoR2 serve as receptors for adiponectin in vitro, and their reduction in obesity seems to beExpand

Adiponectin and AdipoR1 regulate PGC-1α and mitochondria by Ca2+ and AMPK/SIRT1
Adiponectin is an anti-diabetic adipokine. Its receptors possess a seven-transmembrane topology with the amino terminus located intracellularly, which is the opposite of G-protein-coupled receptors.Expand

Adiponectin stimulates AMP-activated protein kinase in the hypothalamus and increases food intake.
Adiponectin has been shown to stimulate fatty acid oxidation and enhance insulin sensitivity through the activation of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) in the peripheral tissues. The effects ofExpand

Genetic variation in the gene encoding adiponectin is associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes in the Japanese population.
An adipocyte-derived peptide, adiponectin (also known as GBP28), is decreased in subjects with type 2 diabetes. Recent genome-wide scans have mapped a diabetes susceptibility locus to chromosomeExpand

Overexpression of Monocyte Chemoattractant Protein-1 in Adipose Tissues Causes Macrophage Recruitment and Insulin Resistance*
Adipose tissue expression and circulating concentrations of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) correlate positively with adiposity. To ascertain the roles of MCP-1 overexpression in adipose,Expand
