Chemerin,identified as a novel adipokine,is mainly secreted from adipocyte by autocrine or paracrine ways. Chemerin has an impact on glucose and lipid metabolism cause it can recruit inflammatory cells,regulate insulin sensitivity and promote adipocytes differentiation via its own receptor. Thus,it may play an important role in obesity and metabolic syndrome. Meanwhile,chemerin is also closely related to cardiovascular disease,cancer,non-alcoholic fatty liver disease,polycystic ovary syndrome,psoriasis,etc. It may become a new target for the treatment of the related diseases.
