Application of network analysis to dissect the potential molecular mechanisms of biological processes and complicated diseases has been the new trend in biology and medicine in recent years. Among which, the protein-protein interactions (PPI) networks attract interests of most researchers. Adiponectin, a cytokine secreted from adipose tissue, participates in a number of metabolic processes, including glucose regulation and fatty acid metabolism and involves in a series of complicated diseases from head to toe. Hundreds of proteins including many identified and potential drug targets have been reported to be involved in adiponectin related signaling pathways, which comprised a complicated regulation network. Therapeutic target database (TTD) provides extensive information about the known and explored therapeutic protein targets and the signaling pathway information. In this study, adiponectin associated drug targets based PPI was constructed and its topological properties were analyzed, which might provide some insight into the dissection of adiponectin action mechanisms and promote adiponectin signaling based drug target identification and drug discovery.
