Adiponectin is required for enhancement of CCL2 expression in adipose tissue during Listeria monocytogenes infection.


Obesity is an important background of metabolic syndrome progression. Our previous study demonstrated that chemokine CCL2 expression was suppressed in liver of obese mice that were highly susceptible to Listeria monocytogenes infection. We investigated the role of adiponectin in CCL2 expression in obese mice after L. monocytogenes infection. When leptin… (More)
