Adipocyte and Chemokines: A Link between Preadipocyte/Adipocyte and Macrophage in Adipocyte- Related Pathologies

  • Yu, Rina
  • Published : 2004.06.01


This review will present a brief overview on the adipocytokines and chemokines in terms of their classifications and functions, and further discuss the most recent results of chemokine research into their regulation of adipocyte functions and/or adipocyte-related pathologies. The potential link between preadipocytes/adipocytes and macrophages will also be highlighted.
