Adiponectin receptor 1, also known as ADIPOR1, is a protein which in humans is encoded by the ADIPOR1 gene.[1]


Similar to G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), ADIPOR1 also possesses 7 transmembrane domains. However ADIPOR1 is orientated oppositely to GPCRs in the membrane (i.e., cytoplasmic N-terminus, extracellular C-terminus) and does not associate with G proteins.[1]


The adiponectin receptors, ADIPOR1 (this protein) and ADIPOR2, serve as receptors for globular and full-length adiponectin and mediate increased AMPK and PPAR-α ligand activities, as well as fatty acid oxidation and glucose uptake by adiponectin.[1][2]
