Abstract

Objective: Irisin is a recently discovered protein and is defined as an adipomyokine. The relation of irisin with carbohydrate metabolism and other hormone parameters have been investigated. However, studies evaluating the relationship between irisin and puberty are limited and inconclusive. The aim was to evaluate serum concentrations of irisin during different pubertal stages in male adolescents.
