Adiponectin Upregulates Ferritin Heavy Chain in Skeletal Muscle Cells


OBJECTIVE Adiponectin is an adipocyte-derived protein that acts to reduce insulin resistance in the liver and muscle and also inhibits atherosclerosis. Although adiponectin reportedly enhances AMP-activated protein kinase and inhibits tumor necrosis factor-alpha action downstream from the adiponectin signal, the precise physiological mechanisms by which… (More)
