Structural polymorphism of oligomeric adiponectin visualized by electron microscopy.

Adiponectin, a macromolecular complex similar to the members of the C1q and other collagenous homologues, elicits diverse biological functions, including anti-diabetes, anti-atherosclerosis, anti-inflammation and anti-tumor activities, which have been directly linked to the high molecular weight (HMW) oligomeric structures formed by multiples of adiponectin… CONTINUE READING
