Omentin

Omentin, also known as Intelectin-1, is an adipokine that is prevalent in visceral (omental) fat but barely detectable in subcutaneous fat. Decreased omentin levels are associated with increasing obesity and insulin resistance. A reduction of plasma omentin levels is significantly correlated with an increase in waist circumference, dyslipidemia, high blood pressure and glucose intolerance.
