A polypeptide hormone that is secreted by fat cells and regulates glucose and lipid metabolism, especially by increasing insulin sensitivity and muscle uptake of glucose and by decreasing glucose production in the liver.

[Latin adeps, adip-, fat + Latin nectere, to bind; see ned- in Indo-European roots + -in.]

Por su parte, AE2 reconoce que la reconfiguracion de la matriz productiva de Talcahuano es posible, sin embargo, aun asi es necesaria una base industrial para alcanzar el desarrollo, lo que es senalado tambien por APM1. Por el contrario, para APM2 es clave reconfigurar el area metropolitana de Concepcion, otorgandole valor a elementos innovadores, como el valor del conocimiento; APM3 destaca que el area metropolitana de Concepcion es la mas grande desde su ubicacion hacia el sur del continente, lo que la vuelve competitiva.
