Skeletal muscles express and elaborate a number of cytokines and other substances for modulating various metabolic processes which function locally and also target distant organs are known as myokines. Irisin is one of the most recently discovered myokines and is found to modulate effect of exercise on adipocytes through browning of white adipose tissue.
