About Marc Pilon

 RESEARCH AREA

Elucidating the function of the adiponectin receptors
Adiponectin is a hormone produced by adipocytes and that has insulin-sensitizing activities. Its receptors have seven transmembrane domain with a topology inverse that of GPCRs; how these receptors signal is at present poorly understood. We are studying mutant of these receptors in the small nematode C. elegans to elucidate how they signal. This work should lead to the identification of new targets for pharmaceutical intervention in the context of the metabolic syndrome, and provide fundamentally new knowledge about hormonal regulation of metabolism.
