ADIPOQ stimulates the expression of growth factors and extracellular matrix, in vitro wound healing, and proliferation.
The studies have reported that adinopectin (Adipoq), leptin (Lep), ghrelin (Ghr), and insulin-like growth factor (Igf1) hormones have an important role in the cancer development and immunity [15, 54, 56].
We observed that romidepsin induced adipocytic differentiation through the upregulation of adipocyte associated transcriptional factors known to be required for adipocyte differentiation, for example, peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma 2 (PPAR[gamma]2) and CCAAT/enhancer binding protein a (CEBP[alpha]) [19-21] and other genes relevant to adipogenesis, including ADIPOQ, AP2, PCK1, LPL, and LIPE.
In the current study, we noted negative relationships between DIO2 and anti-inflammatory gene expression of PPAR[gamma] and ADIPOQ and no association with well-known proinflammatory mediators of insulin sensitivity, including IL-1[beta], TNF[alpha], leptin, and NLRP3.
Individuals susceptible to excessive fat gain often carry gene variants that influence appetite control (CNR1, NPY, POMC, MC4R, etc.), insulin signaling (ISR-2, INSIG2, GIPR) and inflammation (ADIPOQ, IL-6, RESISTIN, etc.).
The stimulation of Adipoq (adiponectin gene) in adipose tissue as a ligand of PPAR-[gamma] (peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor [gamma]) is one of the effects of EPA and DHA (44).
Background: The human ADIPOQ gene encodes adiponectin protein hormone, which is involved in regulating glucose levels as well as fatty acid breakdown.
The ADIPOQ gene for adiponectin is normally positively regulated by PPAR[gamma] and studying obese subjects revealed that plasma adiponectin levels were indeed significantly lower in 12Ala allele carriers [8].
Moderate alcohol consumption increases insulin sensitivity and ADIPOQ expression in postmenopausal women: A randomised, crossover trial.
Adiponectin (also termed acrp 30, adipoQ, APM-1, GBP28) is an adipocytokine that is generally and abundantly expressed in adipose tissue and directly sensitizes the cells to insulin.
AdipoQ is a novel adipose- specific gene dysregulated in obesity.
