A cysteine-rich secreted protein, an adipokine (found in inflammatory zone 3, FIZZ3, 108 aa) produced by adipocytes and by immunocompetent cells that may modulate insulin resistance. Polymorphisms are associated with susceptibility to type 2 diabetes. FIZZ2 (resistin-like protein β) has ~50% sequence homology and probably has similar functions.
