  • Function

    Important adipokine involved in the control of fat metabolism and insulin sensitivity, with direct anti-diabetic, anti-atherogenic and anti-inflammatory activities. Stimulates AMPK phosphorylation and activation in the liver and the skeletal muscle, enhancing glucose utilization and fatty-acid combustion. Antagonizes TNF-alpha by negatively regulating its expression in various tissues such as liver and macrophages, and also by counteracting its effects. Inhibits endothelial NF-kappa-B signaling through a cAMP-dependent pathway. May play a role in cell growth, angiogenesis and tissue remodeling by binding and sequestering various growth factors with distinct binding affinities, depending on the type of complex, LMW, MMW or HMW.
  • Tissue specificity

    Synthesized exclusively by adipocytes and secreted into plasma.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in ADIPOQ are the cause of adiponectin deficiency (ADPND) [MIM:612556]. ADPND results in very low concentrations of plasma adiponectin.
    Genetic variations in ADIPOQ are associated with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) [MIM:125853]; also known as diabetes mellitus type 2. NIDDM is characterized by an autosomal dominant mode of inheritance, onset during adulthood and insulin resistance.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 1 C1q domain.
    Contains 1 collagen-like domain.
  • Domain

    The C1q domain is commonly called the globular domain.
  • Post-translational

    Hydroxylated Lys-33 was not identified in PubMed:16497731, probably due to poor representation of the N-terminal peptide in mass fingerprinting.
    HMW complexes are more extensively glycosylated than smaller oligomers. Hydroxylation and glycosylation of the lysine residues within the collagene-like domain of adiponectin seem to be critically involved in regulating the formation and/or secretion of HMW complexes and consequently contribute to the insulin-sensitizing activity of adiponectin in hepatocytes.
    O-glycosylated. Not N-glycosylated. O-linked glycans on hydroxylysines consist of Glc-Gal disaccharides bound to the oxygen atom of post-translationally added hydroxyl groups. Sialylated to varying degrees depending on tissue. Thr-22 appears to be the major site of sialylation. Higher sialylation found in SGBS adipocytes than in HEK fibroblasts. Sialylation is not required neither for heterodimerization nor for secretion. Not sialylated on the glycosylated hydroxylysines. Desialylated forms are rapidly cleared from the circulation.

I wanted to let you know that the outcome of my investigation with the source of ab13882 was that it was found that the lot you had received has not given satisfactory results in the recent tests. We have immediately removed all the stock of this product and are contacting all customers who purchased this lot to offer a replacement of the new lot. I hope this unfortunate event will not deter you from purchasing from Abcam in the future and wish you all the best with your research,

Thank you for your reply. First of all, please ignore the invoice until we sort this problem out. I have looked through the details you have forwarded to us and unfortunately from point 3. to 6. on the ELISA Questionnaire I can't find the answers. Although I understand that your ELISA assay work nicely with your positive control, the extra information regarding samples, blocking, dilution of the primary antibody etc would have been very important for us to be able to identify the source of the problem. You have carried out a Sandwich type of ELISA. Have you actually coated the wells with the primary antibody first or with the samples and/or the recombinant protein? How much recombinant protein have you used? In what concentration range have you tested the protein? I would also like to know the primary antibody you used. Is it monoclonal or polyclonal antibody? We look forward to hearing from you soon.
