Fetuin-A is a protein which is an endogenous inhibitor inhibiting insulin receptor tyrosine kinase causing insulin resistance [1]. Increased fetuin-A expression has also been shown to be involved in excessive fat accumulation, impaired glucose tolerance and inflammatory processes [2, 3]. In the past years, a large body of research has demonstrated a strong… CONTINUE READING
