Adiponectin signaling and function in insulin target tissues Obesity-linked type 2 diabetes is one of the paramount causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide, posing a major threat on human health, productivity, and quality of life. Despite great progress made towards a better understanding of the molecular basis of diabetes, the available clinical counter-measures against insulin resistance, a defect that is central to obesity-linked type 2 diabetes, remain inadequate. Adiponectin, an abundant adipocyte-secreted factor with a wide-range of biological activities, improves insulin sensitivity in major insulin target tissues, modulates inflammatory responses, and plays a crucial role in the regulation of energy metabolism.
The evolution of multicellular organisms allowed cell specialization and cell replacement. Understandings, applications and Skills: According to the cell theory, living organisms are composed of cells. U2 Organisms consisting of only one cell carry out all functions of life in that cell.
U3 Surface area to volume ratio is important in the limitation of cell size. U4 Multicellular organisms have properties that emerge from the interaction of their cellular components. U5 Specialized tissues can develop by cell differentiation in multicellular organisms. U7 The capacity of stem cells to divide and differentiate along different pathways is necessary in embryonic development and also makes stem cells suitable for therapeutic uses.
