ABSTRACT
Adenosine A1 receptor-deficient mice develop a phenotype of insulin resistance and grow fat. Participating pathophysiological pathways are not understood in detail yet, as discussed in our recent manuscript. This commentary further explores possible pathophysiological mechanisms with emphasis on the roles of the adipokines resistin, retinolbinding protein 4, adiponectin and the function of the gastric hormone ghrelin in adenosine mediated central regulation of energy balance. The postulate of an important function of ghrelin/A1AR axis provides a good hypothetical basis for further investigations to clarify the mechanism of A1AR-dependent metabolic homeostasis.

    Objective: Visfatin, an adipokine, has insulin-mimetic effects. The main determinants of both the production and the physiologic role of visfatin are still unclear. The aim of this study is to determine the relation of serum visfatin to adiposity and glucose metabolism. Methods: 40 pubertal...

    The molecular target of the adipokine vaspin (visceral adipose tissue-derived serpin; serpinA12) and its mode of action are unknown. Here, we provide the vaspin crystal structure and identify human kallikrein 7 (hK7) as a first protease target of vaspin inhibited by classical serpin mechanism...

    In the present study, we sought to investigate the long-term effects of nonylphenol (NP) on insulin signaling and glucose metabolism in liver. Furthermore, reactive oxygen species (ROS) in liver was evaluated as it is known to induce insulin resistance. Rats were administered NP by oral gavage...
