Resistin, an adipocyte-derived cytokine, causes insulin resistance and glucose intolerance in mice. We investigated whether resistin expression was higher in human abdominal adipose tissue than other adipose tissue depots. We extracted RNA from 32 adipose tissue samples (13 subcutaneous abdominal, seven omentum, six thigh, and six breast). Quantitative PCR was used to determine resistin mRNA expression. Resistin mRNA concentrations were similar in both the subcutaneous abdominal and omental… Expand
