UCP2 is a member of the mitochondrial carrier family, having 59% amino-acid identity to UCP1 and has a role in diabetes and obesity. In comparison with UCP1, UCP2 has a greater effect on mitochondrial membrane potential when expressed in yeast. The protein acts as a regulator of mitochondrial ROS production through uncoupling mitochondrial respiration from ATP synthesis. The protein also has a unique role in energy balance, body weight regulation and thermoregulation and their responses to inflammatory stimuli. It is widely expressed in adult human tissues, including tissues rich in macrophages, and is upregulated in white fat in response to fat feeding. UCP2 maps to region of human chromosome 11q13 that has been linked to hyperinsulinaemia and obesity.
