Plasma pigment epithelium-derived factor is positively associated with obesity in Caucasian subjects, in particular with the visceral fat depot
European Journal of Endocrinology
ObjectiveAdipose tissue releases factors (adipokines) that influence local, peripheral as well as central processes. In the present study, we determined the relationship between plasma concentration of a recently identified adipokine, pigment epithelium-derived factor (SERPINF1), and human obesity, particularly specific adipose tissue depots, and other features of the metabolic syndrome.MethodsWe examined the plasma concentration of SERPINF1, anthropometric parameters, abdominal s.c. anddoi:10.1530/eje-08-0521 pmid:18787046 fatcat:5unuttldufh5renmmijwyfpzz4
