Adiponectin is a protein hormone involved in maintaining energy homeostasis in metabolically active tissues. It enhances glucose and lipid metabolism via activation of AMP-dependent kinase (AMPK) in skeletal muscle and liver. Energy homeostasis is vital for the heart to work as a pump. In this study, we investigated whether adiponectin and its receptors are expressed in adult ventricular cardiomyocytes. We observed adiponectin transcript and protein in cultured ventricular cardiomyocytes… Expand
