Adiponectin is a protein hormone secreted exclusively by adipocytes that regulates the metabolism of lipids and glucose. Adiponectin has been shown to play a role in various physiological processes including homeostasis and obesity. Decreased levels of adiponectin are associated with obese individuals as well as insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia (type 2 diabetes). In mice adiponectin has been shown to improve insulin signaling, thus ameliorating insulin resistance. Through activation of AMP kinase and PPAR-alpha, adiponectin can increase fatty acid transport, oxidation, and dissipation in skeletal muscle, leading to a reduction of intramyocellular lipid levels and thus improved insulin signaling.
