Gene: RETN (resistin) Homo sapiens
Symbol: RETN
Name: resistin
Description: This gene belongs to the family defined by the mouse resistin-like genes. The characteristic feature of this family is the C-terminal stretch of 10 cys residues with identical spacing. The mouse homolog of this protein is secreted by adipocytes, and may be the hormone potentially linking obesity to type II diabetes. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2010]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: adipose tissue-specific secretory factor; ADSF; C/EBP-epsilon regulated myeloid-specific secreted cysteine-rich protein precursor 1; c/EBP-epsilon-regulated myeloid-specific secreted cysteine-rich protein; cysteine-rich secreted protein A12-alpha-like 2; cysteine-rich secreted protein FIZZ3; FIZZ3; found in inflammatory zone 3; MGC126603; MGC126609; resistin delta2; RETN1; RSTN; XCP1
