    Author(s): Asma Akhter and Mohd. ImranAsma Akhter and Mohd. Imran

    Adiponectin (ADIPOQ) is an abundant protein hormone which belongs to a family of adipokines. It is expressed mostly by adipocytes and is an important regulator of lipid and glucose metabolism. It was shown that decreased serum adiponectin concentration indicated insulin resistance in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) with the risk of cardiovascular complications. The fact that adiponectin is an insulin-sensitizing hormone with anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory and anti-atherogenic properties. In this short commentary we are trying to confirm the association of ADIPOQ gene polymorphisms in subjects with T2DM. Furthermore, genetic study in a larger population will address the answer...
