Abstract Cardiovascular and metabolic risk depends not only on the overall obesity but also fat distribution is more powerfull predictor for risk factors. Adipose tissue produces and secretes a variety of bioactive peptides - adipokines The most recently described adipocyte secretory proteins contribute to the pathogenesis of impaired insulin secretion and insulin resistance, endothelial dysfunction, a proinflammatory state and promote progression of atherosclerosis. This review presents an overview of the adipose tissue secreted proteins (leptin, TNF-alpha, IL-6, adiponectin, resistin, visfatin, ASP, FIAF, MT) role and their regulation in the context of abdominal obesity and the adverse metabolic consequences.
