Title:
Retinol-binding protein-4 in experimental and clinical metabolic disease. 
Abstract:
Retinol-binding protein-4 (RBP4), a 21-kDa protein synthesized in the liver and adipose tissue, has recently been described as a murine adipokine involved in the development of insulin resistance. The expression of the gene encoding RBP4 was increased in the adipose tissue, but not in the liver, of insulin-resistant adipose GLUT4(-/-) mice and five other mouse models of obesity and insulin resistance. In addition, intraperitoneal injection or transgenic overexpression of RBP4 in mice induced ins...    »
