- Lipoproteins Regulate Adiponectin Gene Expression in Adipocytes. Chenhui Zou; Liping Qiao; Van Der Westhuyzen, Deneys R.; Shao, Jianhua // Diabetes;Jun2007 Supplement 1, Vol. 56, pA361
Adiponectin plays an important role in lipid metabolism. Circulating adiponectin levels positively correlate with plasma high density lipoprotein (HI)L) and negatively correlate with low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) in humans and most animal models. The...
