The role of a matricellular adipokine in aging by integration of immune-metabolic response

Adipose tissue (body fat) is a central player in immune and metabolic responses during aging, and the accumulation of fat with aging induces increased inflammation and deregulated metabolic responses, causing aging-related diseases. Dr. Ryu has found that a level of protein that is secreted by adipose tissue, is decreased during calorie restriction. He is now trying to understand how this protein may play a role in inflammation and age-related diseases.
