ADIPOGen Consortium

The ADIPOGen Consortium brings together cohorts from all over the world, with the goal of discovering the common genetic contribution to circulating levels of adiponectin. Circulating levels of adiponectin, a hormone produced predominantly by adipocytes, are highly heritable and are inversely associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) along with other metabolic traits. 

Research

We recently had a paper published in PLoS Genetics, entitled Novel Loci for Adiponectin Levels and their Influence on Type 2 Diabetes and Metabolic Traits: A Multi-Ethnic Meta-Analysis of 45,891 Individuals.
