Adiponectin Receptor 2 Protein

Adiponectin Receptor 2 protein function

Receptor for ADIPOQ, an essential hormone secreted by adipocytes that regulates glucose and lipid metabolism (PubMed:12802337, PubMed:25855295). Required for normal body fat and glucose homeostasis. ADIPOQ-binding activates a signaling cascade that leads to increased PPARA activity, and ultimately to increased fatty acid oxidation and glucose uptake. Has intermediate affinity for globular and full-length adiponectin. Required for normal revascularization after chronic ischemia caused by severing of blood vessels (By similarity).

Adiponectin Receptor 2 protein expression

Tissue specificity

Ubiquitous (PubMed:16044242). Highly expressed in skeletal muscle, liver and placenta (PubMed:12802337). Weakly expressed in brain, heart, colon, spleen, kidney, thymus, small intestine, peripheral blood leukocytes and lung (PubMed:12802337).
