Figure 3: The adipocyte specificity of resistin gene expression is caused by binding to CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein alpha (Hartman HB 2002) that belongs to a family of ligand-activated nuclear transcription factors (Darlington GJ, 1998). Resistin circulates in the blood and was suggested to impair insulin action in the original proposal by (Steppan et al. 2001). However, this view has been challenged by others (Way JM, 2001) (Courtesy: Olavi Ukkola et al., European J of Endocrinology (2002) 147)
