chemical mediators, termed adipocytokines or adipokines. The discovery of leptin in 1994 heralded a new era in the study of WAT and the discovery of a number of adipocytokines, such as adiponectin, leptin, resistin, visfatin, apelin, omentin, chemerin

adipose tissue (WAT) contributes to endocrine signaling by the secretion of a set of factors, collectively named adipokines, expressed and secreted by adipocytes and delivered locally and into the systemic circulation. Adipokines have various functions in

Introduction Adipokines, secreted by adipose tissue, are involved in the pathogenesis of metabolic syndrome ( Lehr et al . 2012 ). Chemerin, encoded by the gene retinoic acid receptor responder 2 ( Rarres2 ), also known as tazarotene

Introduction The recognition that adipose tissue is an endocrine organ, capable of secreting a plethora of adipose-secreted cytokines (adipokines) that mediate tissue crosstalk, has transformed our understanding of metabolism, with
