arthritis on visceral WAT mass regulation. Serum concentrations of leptin and adiponectin as well as their gene expression in WAT were measured as they are the main adipokines released by the adipose tissue. As lipolytic factors, HSL and ZAG gene expression

-derived proteins by insulin infusion. The WAT-derived proteins examined were hexokinase II (HK II), the regulatory subunit p85α of phosphatidylinositol-3 kinase (PI3K), leptin, adiponectin, and acylation-stimulating protein (ASP). These proteins have been well
