Open Access Association of Serum Chemerin Levels with Coronary Artery Disease: Pathogenesis and Clinical Research

This article is Open Access under the terms of the Creative Commons CC BY-NC licence.

Recent studies have revealed that chemerin plays an essential role in the development of cardiovascular diseases. Autopsy studies found a strong correlation between the secretion of chemerin in peripheral tissues and aortic and coronary atherosclerosis. Plasma chemerin is a marker of systemic inflammation and is associated with metabolic syndrome. Chemerin plays a vital role in vascular inflammation and atherogenesis. Plasma chemerin levels are increased in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy, and chemerin is associated with left ventricular dysfunction. In this review, we focus on chemerin expression, chemerin processing, its biological function, and its role in the diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases.
