Asprosin is an hormone derived from the Fibrillin-1 which corresponds to residues from 2734 to 2871 of the Fibrillin protein.
Asprosin is a protein hormone produced by mammals in tissues that stimulates the liver to release glucose into the blood stream. Asprosin is encoded by the gene FBN1 as part of the protein profibrillin and is released from the C-terminus of the latter by specific proteolysis.
