    Adiponectin is an adipokine first described just over a decade ago. Produced almost exclusively by adipocytes, adiponectin circulates in high concentrations in human plasma. Research into this hormone has revealed it to have insulin-sensitizing, anti-inflammatory and cardioprotective roles. This...

    Since its discovery in 1995 adiponectin has garnered considerable interest from the academic, clinical and biotech communities due to its proposed salutary anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, anti-atherogenic and cardioprotective properties. As a result our appreciation of adiponectin's structure...
