Example text

Adipose tissue has also been identified as a source of production of factors with immunological properties participating in immunity and stress responses, as is the case for ASP (acylation-simulating protein) and metallothionein. More recently, the pivotal role of adipocyte-derived factors in cardiovascular function control such as angiotensinogen, adiponectin, peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor  angiopoietin related protein/fasting-induced adipose factor (PGAR/FIAF), and C-reactive protein (CRP) has been established.

The exact nature and control of this complex cross-talk has not been fully elucidated and represents an exciting research topic.
