Description Resistin is an adipose-derived hormone postulated to link adiposity to insulin resistance. Type 2 diabetes, characterized by target-tissue resistance to insulin, is epidemic in industrialized societies and is strongly associated with obesity. Adipocytes secrete a unique signalling molecule, which called resistin (for resistance to insulin), that may be the hormone potentially links obesity to diabetes. Resistin is overexpressed in mouse adipose tissue of obese individuals and is likely to modulate insulin sensitivity. Resistin is, therefore, a candidate gene for insulin resistance. The standard product used in this kit is mouse Resistin with the molecular mass of 51-53KDa. The detected Resistin includes zymogen and active enzyme. The lead time for delivery is one week.
