...Katarzyna Krzyzanowska; Walter Krugluger; Friedrich Mittermayer; Rupa Rahman; Dominik Haider; Nadja Shnawa; Guntram Schernthaner The recently discovered adipocytokine visfatin has insulin-like properties. It lowers blood glucose and improves insulin sensitivity; however, clinical data on visfatin...

... excess body energy, but also secretes a variety of bioactive adipocytokines. Obese patients, particularly those with visceral fat accumulation, have reduced plasma levels of adiponectin, the most abundant and adipose-specific adipocytokine. Although the association of adiponectin with several diseases...

... in rodent models. In addition, resistin also appears to be a pro-inflammatory cytokine. Taken together, resistin, like many other adipocytokines, may possess a dual role in contributing to disease risk. However, to date there has been considerable controversy surrounding this 12.5 kDa polypeptide...
