Introduction Fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21) was identified by Nishimura in 2000 ( Nishimura et al . 2000 ) and is mainly expressed in liver and pancreas ( Fon Tacer et al . 2010 ). FGF21 belongs to the FGF19 subfamily of endocrine FGFs

adaptations are not completely understood. Fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21), a pleotropic endocrine hormone produced by several tissues, plays an important role in systemic glucose and lipid metabolism ( Kharitonenkov et al . 2005 , Zhang et al . 2008

Introduction Among the 22 fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) identified in humans, FGF19, FGF21 and FGF23, which belong to the FGF19 subfamily, are vastly different from other FGFs and are primarily involved in the regulation of metabolic

growth factor 21 (FGF21) is an important regulator of glucose metabolism ( Kharitonenkov et al . 2005 ). FGF21 levels are increased in NAFLD and correlate with hepatic triglyceride content ( Li et al . 2010 ); therefore, FGF21 is considered an emergent

Introduction Fibroblast growth factor-21 (FGF21) is a member of the FGF family including 22 members ( Beenken & Mohammadi 2009 ). FGF21 is mainly produced by the liver but also by other tissues including white adipose tissue (WAT), skeletal muscle

Introduction Fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21) is an endocrine member of the fibroblast growth factor superfamily that plays a key role in the regulation of carbohydrate and fatty acid metabolism ( Kharitonenkov & Adams 2014 ). The primary

Introduction Fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21) is one of three endocrine FGFs that influence metabolic responses via a combination of local and systemic actions. FGF21 is expressed in the liver, pancreas, and white and brown adipose tissue
