Omentin is a member of the adipokine family of cytokines typically made and secreted by adipose tissue that surrounds internal organs and also by the small intestine. Omentin enhances insulin-stimulated glucose uptake in adipocytes and is considered to be a link between obesity and Type 2 Diabetes. Recombinant human Omentin is a non-glycosylated protein.
