Asprosin and Effects on Glucose Metabolism
MetadataShow full item record
Adipokines secreted from adipose tissue, are bioactive substances and have kinds of functions on appetite, energy, lipid, carbohydrate metabolism, regulation of blood pressure, inflammation, etc. One of the adipokines is asprosin discovered in 2016, is secreted by white adipose tissue. This is released during fasting and found in circulating nanomolar levels. Asprosin is encoded by two exons of the gene FBN1 and is known for its effects on many metabolic processes, especially glucose metabolism, and is still under investigation. This study was aimed to investigate the relationship between asprosin and some public health problems such as obesity and type 2 diabetes.
