Introduction Adiponectin is a humoral factor that is abundantly secreted by adipocytes ( Scherer et al. 1995 , Hu et al. 1996 , Maeda et al. 1996 , Nakano et al. 1996 ). Adiponectin levels are reduced in obese individuals ( Arita

-associated insulin resistance is thus essential to underpin the development of novel pharmacological approaches to the treatment of diabetes. Adiponectin (AdipoQ, Acrp30) is an adipokine that is secreted in a mixture of trimeric, hexameric (low molecular weight) and
