We report sequence, tissue expression and map position data for the adiponectin gene (ADIPOQ) in chicken. This gene is involved in adipocyte differentiation in mammals and may play similar roles in chicken. The complete coding sequence of chicken ADIPOQ encodes a 244 amino acid protein. The coding region of the chicken ADIPOQ is organized in two exons and spans an approximately 2.1 kb genomic region. Domain/motif structures of the adiponectin protein among chicken and mammalian homologs are… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Seasonal and sexual variation in mRNA expression of selected adipokine genes affecting fat deposition and metabolism of the emu (Dromaius novaehollandiae)
TLDR
The 6 expressed emu adipokine genes showed seasonal variation in expression and showed association of expression level with back fat adiposity and more whole-genome scanning studies are needed to develop novel molecular markers that can be applied to improve fat production in emus.
Polymorphism in exon 1 of adiponectin gene and its association with water holding capacity, IMF and abdominal fat in duck
TLDR
The research suggested that genotype DD may be an advantage genotype for fat deposition in duck, which could be used in marker assistant selection (MAS) as a genetic marker for the birds’ fat deposition.
Expression profile of adiponectin and adiponectin receptors in high fat diet feeding chicken
TLDR
The effect of high‐fat diet in expression profile of adiponectin and its receptors in chicken is explored and the new insights for how adipokines modulate physiological function in avian species are provided.
Adiponectin reduces lipid content in chicken myoblasts by activating AMPK signaling pathway
TLDR
The regulating effect of adiponectin on lipid metabolism in chicken myoblasts was explored by adding a certain concentration of exogenous recombinant adiponECTin, and it was suggested that adip onectin reduced intracellular lipid content, mainly by binding to adiponectionin receptor, activating AMPK pathway, increasing cellular uptake of glucose and fatty acids and promoting lipid oxidation.
Association of three SNPs in adiponectin gene with lipid traits of Tianzhu Black Muscovy (Cairina moschata).
TLDR
Two SNPs in adiponectin were potential markers for improving IMF in Muscovy ducks and association analysis indicated that the 167G>A genotypes were strongly associated with intramuscular fat (IMF) of chest muscle and serum total cholesterol (TC).
Association of three SNPs in adiponectin gene with lipid traits of Tianzhu Black Muscovy (Cairina moschata)
TLDR
Three SNPs in adiponectin were potential markers for improving IMF in Muscovy ducks and were found to be associated with intramuscular fat (IMF) of chest muscle and serum total cholesterol (TC) and serum triglyceride (TG) respectively.
Chicken Is a Useful Model to Investigate the Role of Adipokines in Metabolic and Reproductive Diseases
TLDR
An overview of the structure and function related to metabolic and reproductive mechanisms of the latter three adipokines with emphasis on avian species is provided.
Identification of Key Candidate Genes in Runs of Homozygosity of the Genome of Two Chicken Breeds, Associated with Cold Adaptation
TLDR
The genomic distribution of runs of homozygosity (ROH) in a population of Russian White (RW) chickens is studied to perform a structural annotation of the discovered breed-specific regions of the genome and to suggest key candidate genes associated with the adaptation of RW chickens to cold environments.

Chromosomal localization, expression pattern, and promoter analysis of the mouse gene encoding adipocyte-specific secretory protein Acrp30.
TLDR
The sequence of mouse Acrp30 locus is described, the intron/exon boundaries are defined and the gene is mapped to the telomere of mouse chromosome 16, syntenic to the human chromosomal locus 3q27 and alternative polyadenylation gives rise to two distinct mRNA species.
cDNA cloning and expression of a novel adipose specific collagen-like factor, apM1 (AdiPose Most abundant Gene transcript 1).
TLDR
The apM1 gene encodes a 244 amino acid open reading frame containing a putative signal sequence and G-X-Y repeats (66 amino acids) followed by a cluster of aromatic residues near the C terminus having high local similarity with collagens X and VIII and complement factor C1q.

TLDR
The compact physical size of the chicken genome, combined with the large size of its genetic map and the observed degree of conserved synteny, makes the chicken a valuable model organism in the genomics as well as the postgenomics era.
Adiponectin acts in the brain to decrease body weight
TLDR
Results show that ADP has unique central effects on energy homeostasis, and indicates the melanocortin pathway may be a common target for ADP and leptin.
