Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
Fibronectin Type III Domain-containing Protein 5 (cleaved); Fibronectin Type III Repeat-containing Protein 2 (cleaved); FNDC5 (cleaved)
Irisin is a recently described exercise-induced hormone secreted by skeletal muscle in mice and humans. Irisin activates beige fat cells (beige cells have a gene expression pattern distinct from either white or brown fat and are preferentially sensitive to the polypeptide hormone Irisin). Irisin is cleaved from the type I membrane protein FNDC5 and improves systemic metabolism by increasing energy expenditure.
