Recent years have seen several advances in our understanding of the functions of adipose tissue regarding not only the energy storage, but also the regulation of complex metabolic and endocrine functions. In this context, leptin and adiponectin, the two most abundant adipocyte products, represent one of the best example of adipocytokines involved in the control of energy expenditure, lipid and carbohydrate metabolism as well as in the regulation of immune responses. Leptin and adiponectin… CONTINUE READING
