OBJECTIVE Obesity-related insulin resistance is closely associated with visceral fat accumulation. Several adipocyte-secreted molecules have been implicated in the development of type 2 diabetes, among them, the recently discovered adiponectin and resistin proteins. Some of these adipocytokines are also present in the immune system, thus suggesting an intriguing functional connection. RESEARCH METHODS AND PROCEDURES We determined adiponectin and resistin expressions in visceral (VAT) and… CONTINUE READING
