Several studies have found that cord blood adiponectin levels are related with postnatal growth trajectories, and it has been suggested that low adiponectin levels in women with pregestational obesity enhance placental insulin sensitivity and activation of placental amino acid transport systems, supporting fetal overgrowth.
Considering that most scientific knowledge on adiponectin dysregulation in obesity is from the study of adipose tissue, the present review summarizes and discusses the literature available to date regarding the effects of obesity on skeletal muscle adiponectin induction, along with the potential effects of different exercise prescriptions on this response in an obesity context.
We analyzed associations of these polymorphisms with anthropometric parameters, lipid profile, as well as adiponectin, leptin and soluble leptin receptor (sOB-R) levels in prepubertal healthy children, to search for their possible role in the risk of obesity and obesity-related disorders.
The aim of this study was to investigate the association between the RANKL and c-Fos gene methylation on obesity with body mass index (BMI), lipid parameters, homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR), plasma leptin, adiponectin and resistin levels.
In this study, we investigated the effects of HFD on obesity and insulin resistance in two distinct types of adipose-specific L-PGDS gene knockout (KO) mice: fatty acid binding protein 4 (fabp4, aP2)-Cre/L-PGDS <sup>flox/flox</sup> and adiponectin (AdipoQ)-Cre/L-PGDS <sup>flox/flox</sup> mice.
We explored the effects of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) on the circulating levels of adiponectin, leptin, and the adiponectin/leptin (Adpn/Lep) ratio in patients with obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2D).
