26997632 CTRP3 overexpression altered chemokine levels and attenuated systemic inflammation in the setting of obesity.
26656444 CTRP3 is present in cord blood and might be involved in fetal growth
26222183 Lower Circulating C1q/TNF-Related Protein-3 (CTRP3) Levels Are Associated with Obesity
26073386 plasma CTRP-3 is strongly associated with glucose and lipid metabolism, chronic inflammation, and insulin resistance.
25409499 Results show that cartonectin may serve as a novel biomarker for the prediction and early diagnosis of type 2 diabetes mellitus patients.
25185846 CTRP3 could improve insulin sensitivity of insulin resistant 3T3-L1 adipocytes by decreasing inflammation and ameliorating insulin signalling transduction, indicating that CTRP3 may be a new target for the prevention and cure of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes.
24578384 CTRP3 promotes vascular calcification by enhancing phosphate-induced osteogenic transition of VSMC through reactive oxygen species-extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2-Runx2 pathway.
24417980 Patients with acute coronary syndrome or stable angina pectoris had significantly lower circulating CTRP-3 concentrations compared to controls.
24152681 Data suggest that serum/omental adipose tissue (AT) cartonectin levels are lower in women with polycystic ovary syndrome; treatment with a hypoglycemic agent (metformin) increases serum cartonectin levels in these women and in omental AT explants.
23174996 Data suggest that CTRP3 is expressed in subcutaneous and visceral adipocytes; CTRP3 appears to play important roles in adipocyte (epinephrine-induced) lipolysis, inflammation/infection, and adipokine/resistin secretion.
