This gene belongs to the family defined by the mouse resistin-like genes. The characteristic feature of this family is the C-terminal stretch of 10 cys residues with identical spacing. The mouse homolog of this protein is secreted by adipocytes, and may be the hormone potentially linking obesity to type II diabetes. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2010] (from NCBI)

Matarese et al., Siena, Italy. In Clin Exp Immunol, Feb 2016
Our primary aim was to explore serum levels of soluble CD40 L (sCD40L), soluble intracellular adhesion molecule (sICAM-1), monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1), myeloperoxidase (MPO), leptin, resistin, osteoprotegerin (OPG), soluble type 1 tumour necrosis factor receptor (sTNFR) and interleukin 6 (IL-6) and SAA serum concentration in a cohort of 27 BD patients.

Adipokines, cytokines and body fat stores in hepatitis C virus liver steatosis.
Santolaria-Fernández et al., La Laguna, Spain. In World J Hepatol, Feb 2016
METHODS: We included 56 HCV infected patients, and assessed the amount of liver fat by histomorphometry, and its relationships with fat and lean mass at different parts of the body (by densitometry), hormones [insulin, homeostatic model assessment (HOMA)], adipokines (resistin, adiponectin, leptin), and cytokines (tumor necrosis factor α, interleukin-6).

Taouis et al., Orsay, France. In Diabetes, Feb 2016
UNASSIGNED: Adiponectin, an insulin-sensitizing hormone, and resistin, known to promote insulin resistance, constitute a potential link between obesity and type2 diabetes.
Association of recently described adipokines with liver histology in biopsy-proven non-alcoholic fatty liver disease: a systematic review.
Calders et al., Gent, Belgium. In Obes Rev, Jan 2016
Based on literature, clinical studies suggest that chemerin, resistin and adipocyte-fatty-acid-binding protein potentially are involved in NAFLD pathogenesis and/or progression.
Implications of exercise-induced adipo-myokines in bone metabolism.
Banfi et al., Milano, Italy. In Endocrine, Jan 2016
The beneficial effects of exercise on bone metabolism depends on the intermittent exposure to myokines (i.e., irisin, IL-6, LIF, IGF-I) which, instead, act as inflammatory/pro-resorptive mediators when chronically elevated; on the other hand, the reduction in the circulating levels of adipokines (i.e., leptin, visfatin, adiponectin, resistin) sustains these effects as well as improves the whole-body metabolic status.
Brain microangiopathy and macroangiopathy share common risk factors and biomarkers.
Lee et al., Seoul, South Korea. In Atherosclerosis, Jan 2016
Inflammatory biomarkers (C-reactive protein, E-selectin, and LpPLA2), endothelial dysfunction (asymmetric dimethylarginine, urinary albumin-to-creatinine ratio, endostatin, and homocysteine), atherogenesis (lipoprotein(a), adiponectin, and resistin), and renal function (creatinine clearance and estimated glomerular filtration rate) were assessed.
Resistin's, obesity and insulin resistance: the continuing disconnect between rodents and humans.
Yang et al., Chongqing, China. In J Endocrinol Invest, Jan 2016
PURPOSE: This review aimed to discuss the conflicting findings from resistin research in rodents and humans as well as recent advances in our understanding of resistin's role in obesity and insulin resistance.
