Adipocytokines or adipokines are bioactive molecules that are produced by adipose tissue. They comprise cytokines, chemokines coagulation factors and factors involved in the regulation lipoprotein metabolism. Some examples of adipocytokines include pro-inflammatory mediators such as IL-6 and IL-8, angiogenic proteins (participate in blood vessel formation) such as vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and fibroblast growth factor (FGF) and metabolic regulators such as adiponectin and lectin. Adipokines function to increase the inflammatory response systemically. ELISA Genie has a vast range of reagents and ELISA kits for adipose tissue research and all products related to metabolic research are displayed below.
