Resistin-like molecule β(RELMβ), originally identified as an intestinal secretory protein, played an important role in proliferation and local immunity of intestine. With the in-depth study of RELMβ and its related family, people found it extensively participate in various regulation of physiological and pathological process of our body, otherwise it mediated a variety of signal transduction pathway as a disease initial factor. Therefore RELMβ involved in the occurrence and development of disease and be a new target of related disease therapy. This review summarized the research progress of RELMβ in recent year.
