Adiponectin is an adipocyte-derived hormone that can improve insulin sensitivity. Its functions in regulating glucose utilization and fatty acid metabolism in mammals are mediated by two subtypes of adiponectin receptors (AdipoR1 and AdipoR2). This study was conducted to determine the effect of insulin on the expression of adiponectin and its receptors. We demonstrated that in the presence of 10 nM insulin, addition of 1 microM of insulin or rosiglitazone (a peroxisome proliferator-activated… CONTINUE READING
