Using an MS/MSALL lipidomics platform, Stanford et al. identify 12,13-diHOME as an exercised-induced lipokine in male, female, young, and old human subjects. Murine experiments show that BAT is the tissue source of exercise-induced increases in circulating 12,13-diHOME, and that this lipokine increases fatty acid uptake in skeletal muscle in vivo.
