Adiponectin is an adipocyte-derived abundant plasma protein, also called Acrp30 (adipocyte complement-related protein), adipoQ, ApM1 (AdiPose Most abundant Gene transcript 1), or GBP28 (gelatin-binding protein-28). Insulin resistance is a primary contributing factor in the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes. Adiponectin binds to adiponectin receptors AdipoR1 and AdipoR2, and exerts antidiabetic effects via activation of AMPK and PPAR-α pathways, respectively. In the same sense chronic exercise has… CONTINUE READING
