Adiponectin receptor

The adiponectin receptors (AdipoRs) include the following two receptors, which are bound and activated by adiponectin:

They are members of the progestin and adipoQ receptor (PAQR) family.[1]

In 2016, the University of Tokyo announced it was launching an investigation into anonymously made claims of fabricated and falsified data on the identification of AdipoR1 and AdipoR2.[2]
