Abstract/Summary Adiponectin was isolated, and its molecular structure was identified nearly two decades ago. Although after initial observations it was hoped to characterize adiponectin as a key intermediate that signals from adiposity, recent developments clearly illustrate that the actions of adiponectin extend well beyond that of a simple indicator of adiposity. Significant progress has been made regarding the identification and characterization of adiponectin intermediates, including adiponectin receptors and binding proteins; more work is still needed to clarify the complex role of adiponectin under normal healthy and diseased conditions. This chapter provides a brief overview of the better-demonstrated aspects of adiponectin and established mechanisms underlying well-known functions of adiponectin.
