Visfatin has recently been established as a novel adipokine that is predominantly expressed in subcutaneous and visceral fat. Only few studies have investigated the effect of visfatin on prostate, breast, ovarian cancer as well as on astrocytoma cell biology. There have been no previous studies on antioxidative enzyme activities, proliferation processes or levels of DNA damage in malignant melanoma cells in response to visfatin stimulation. Here, we report that visfatin increases activity of… CONTINUE READING
