BACKGROUND Circulating adiponectin is known to correlate negatively with insulin resistance in patients with obesity and diabetes. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of gastric bypass (GB) surgery on adiponectin gene expression in subcutaneous and omental adipose tissues. METHODS Adipose tissues and plasma were obtained from 25 subjects undergoing GB surgery, 15 non-obese subjects, and 12 subjects after GB surgery. Real-time quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain… CONTINUE READING
