Mature subcutaneous and visceral adipocyte concentrations of adiponectin are highly correlated in prepubertal children and inversely related to body mass index standard deviation score.

Abstract

CONTEXT Adiponectin is an adipocyte-specific protein with insulin-sensitizing properties. Several studies have examined the expression of adiponectin mRNA or tissue/secreted protein levels in fat obtained from adults, but none has assessed tissue levels in childhood. PATIENTS Paired subcutaneous (Sc) and visceral (V) fat samples were obtained from 12… (More)
