Figure 1: Resistin as a potential regulator of inflammation. A schematic representation of key pathophysiological signaling pathways that are mediated by resistin in immune and resident tissue cells is depicted. Resistin can target several human cells, thereby enhancing inflammatory and autoimmune processes. Together with a glucose-dependent increase in triglyceride and cholesterol cellular mass in macrophages, it can contribute to the process of atherosclerosis and its related complications.
