An adipocyte-derived plasma protein, adiponectin, adheres to injured vascular walls.


Adipose tissue secretes a variety of proteins into the bloodstream. We have previously reported a novel cDNA, apM1 (adipose most abundant gene transcript 1), which is specifically and abundantly expressed in adipose tissue [1]. Primary structure analysis predicted that the apM1 gene product possesses significant homology to collagens VIII, X and complement… (More)
