|Other Names||Adiponectin receptor protein 2, Progestin and adipoQ receptor family member II, ADIPOR2, PAQR2|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Receptor for globular and full-length adiponectin (APM1), an essential hormone secreted by adipocytes that acts as an antidiabetic. Probably involved in metabolic pathways that regulate lipid metabolism such as fatty acid oxidation. Mediates increased AMPK, PPARA ligand activity, fatty acid oxidation and glucose uptake by adiponectin. Has some intermediate-affinity receptor activity for both globular and full-length adiponectin.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein Note=Localized to the cell membrane and intracellular organelles|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in skeletal muscle, liver and placenta. Weakly expressed in brain, heart, colon, spleen, kidney, thymus, small intestine, peripheral blood leukocytes and lung|

The adiponectin receptors, ADIPOR1 (MIM 607945) and ADIPOR2, serve as receptors for globular and full-length adiponectin (MIM 605441) and mediate increased AMPK (see MIM 602739) and PPAR-alpha (PPARA; MIM 170998) ligand activities, as well as fatty acid oxidation and glucose uptake by adiponectin.
