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; modelling based on the crystal structures of the adiponectin receptors suggested ceramidase acivity, which would make these the first in a new family of catalytic receptors [3].
