|Product Specification Sheet|
Irisin is a recently described exercise and PGC1-α-induced myokine secreted by skeletal muscle in mice and humans. Irisin has been shown to induce browning of white adipose tissue, but this role has been questioned and a new function in the control of mass and strength of cortical bone has been reported. The membrane fibronectin type III domain containing protein 5 (FNDC5) can be cleaved by an unknown protease to release the Irisin protein (aa 32-143 for human) and potentially also the FNDC5 (extracellular domain, aa 32-153 for human).
