|Title||Quantitative analysis by LC/MS/MS of progranulin as a marker for insulin resistance|
|Abstract||Obesity and diabetes are diseases that afflict enormous populations in the 21st century.
Insulin resistance is a characteristic feature in both obesity and diabetes. Adipose tissue secretes various cytokines or hormone-like substances called “adipokines”. We have recently identified progranulin as a key adipokine that links high fat diet to obesity, suggesting that progranulin can be a biomarker for insulin resistance as well as a therapeutic target of obesity. Progranulin has been shown to be processed to granulin peptides (GRNs).In this lecture, we will discuss a novel method for selective quantification of GRNs in the blood, based on our recent data.
