Description

Osteocrin, also known as Musclin, is a muscle derived secretory peptide which induces insulin resistance in vitro. It encodes a 130 amino acid sequence including a N-terminal 30 amino acid signal sequence. Musclin expression level is tightly regulated by nutritional changes [PMID: 18534131, PMID: 15044443].
