Resistin (also called adipose tissue-specific secretory factor, ADSF) is a member of the family of adipocyte secreted proteins. Resistin appears to act on skeletal muscle myocytes, hepatocytes, and adipocytes themselves, where it is s µggested to reduce insulin sensitivity leading to type 2 diabetes.
