Abstract

The ADIPOR1 and ADIPOR2 proteins (ADIPORs) are generally considered as adiponectin receptors with anti-diabetic properties. However, studies on the yeast and C. elegans homologs of the mammalian ADIPORs, and of the ADIPORs themselves in various mammalian cell models, support an updated/different view. Based on findings in these experimental models, the ADIPORs are now emerging as evolutionarily conserved regulators of membrane homeostasis that do not require adiponectin to act as membrane fluidity sensors and regulate phospholipid composition. More specifically, membrane rigidification activates ADIPOR signaling to promote fatty acid desaturation and incorporation of polyunsaturated fatty acids into membrane phospholipids until fluidity is restored. The present review summarizes the evidence supporting this new view of the ADIPORs, and briefly examines physiological consequences.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 15 July 2021.
All research outputs
#12,280,052
of 19,934,082 outputs
Outputs from Lipids in Health and Disease
#605
of 1,325 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#175,375
of 335,438 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Lipids in Health and Disease
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 19,934,082 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 36th percentile – i.e., 36% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,325 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.0. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 50% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 335,438 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 44th percentile – i.e., 44% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
