The most important adipokines expressed in epicardial tissue are adiponectin, adrenomedullin, and omentin [49].
In a study, rats were subjected to intra-abdominal sepsis from caecal ligation and puncture and the following observations were made: 1) the small intestine is an important source of adrenomedullin release during poly microbial sepsis; 2) norepinephrine induced hepatocellular dysfunction in early sepsis, mediated by activation of a-2 adreno- receptors; and 3) TNF produces hepatocellular dysfunction despite normal cardiac output and hepatic microcirculation.
The fetus secretes adrenomedullin, a proangiogenic vasodilator, into the placenta.
Related to the function of MAF, we have identified that, in culture, adrenomedullin (ADM), a multifunctional hormone that regulates cell growth, potently suppresses germinal vesicle breakdown (GVBD), the initial morphologic change in the induction of oocytes.
IAPP belongs to the calcitonin related peptide family which is comprised of adrenomedullin, [alpha]- and [beta]-calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), intermedin, and calcitonin.
This family also includes calcitonin, two distinct forms of calcitonin gene-related peptide ([alpha]-CGRP and [beta]-CGRP), adrenomedullin and AM2, also known as intermedin.
These include members of the [beta]-defensin family of peptides, the protein calprotectin (also known as calgranulin), and the multifunctional peptide, adrenomedullin (Table 1).
