Adiponectin receptors (provisional nomenclature, ENSFM00500000270960) respond to the 30 kDa complement-related protein hormone adiponectin (also known as ADIPOQ: adipocyte, C1q and collagen domain-containing protein; ACRP30, adipose most abundant gene transcript 1; apM-1; gelatin-binding protein: Q15848) originally cloned from adipocytes [2]. Although sequence data suggest 7TM domains, immunological evidence indicates that, contrary to typical 7TM topology, the carboxyl terminus is extracellular, while the amino terminus is intracellular [4]. Signalling through these receptors appears to avoid G proteins. Adiponectin receptors appear rather to stimulate protein phosphorylation via AMP-activated protein kinase and MAP kinase pathways [4], possibly through the protein partner APPL1 (adaptor protein, phosphotyrosine interaction, PH domain and leucine zipper containing 1, Q9UKG1 [3]). The adiponectin receptors are a class of proteins (along with membrane progestin receptors), which contain seven sequences of aliphatic amino acids reminiscent of GPCRs, but which are structurally and functionally distinct from that class of receptor.
