Official Full Name
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.
RETN; resistin; found in inflammatory zone 3; cysteine-rich secreted protein FIZZ3; adipose tissue-specific secretory factor; dominant inhibitory adipocyte-specific secretory factor; adipose-specific cysteine-rich secreted protein A12-alpha; ADSF; Rstn; Xcp4; Fizz3
