Regulation of resistin expression and circulating levels in obesity, diabetes, and fasting.

Abstract

Resistin was originally reported as an adipose tissue-specific hormone that provided a link between obesity and diabetes. Resistin protein level was elevated in obese mice and decreased by insulin-sensitizing thiazolidinediones. Immunoneutralization of resistin improved insulin sensitivity in diet-induced obese mice, while the administration of exogenous… (More)
