BACKGROUND The effects of adiponectin on glucose and lipid metabolism are mediated by the adiponectin receptors, adipoR1 and adipoR2, which are mainly in liver and muscle. We investigated the presence of adiponectin receptors in intra-abdominal adipose tissue (IAAT) in obesity and diabetes and their association with adiponectin expression and components of the metabolic syndrome and/or other metabolic factors associated with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD). METHODS AdipoR1 and… CONTINUE READING
