Retinol-binding protein 4 (RBP4) is considered as an important mediator of insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome (MS). In adipose tissue (AT)) it is mainly secreted from visceral depots. The residual metabolic risk which remains beyond that caused by visceral AT seems to be hold by upper body subcutaneous AT. This large pathogenic depot might be representative by subcutaneous neck AT.The aim of this study was to examine and to compare RBP4 gene expre...
