ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the study that compared the expression levels of adiponectin and peroxisome proliferator activated receptor gamma (PPARy) genes in children. Paired biopsies of subcutaneous and omental adipose tissue was obtained from 43 children measuring adiponectin and PPRy. The comparison states that median adiponectin messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) level was lower compared to subcutaneous adipose tissue in overweight children.
