adiponectin ( Maeda et al . 1996 ). In humans, adiponectin has been shown to decrease in concentration as fat mass increases, unlike most other adipokines ( Arita et al . 1999 , Kern et al . 2003 ). Thus, adiponectin is considered a beneficial adipokine

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
