Polyclonal Rabbit Serum E B
The regulation of body weight depends upon calorie intake and expenditure. It is a very complex and highly regulated process. It involves multiples neural circuits with specific neuropeptides, neurotransmitter transporters and receptors and influenced by peripheral signals. The product of obese gene (Leptin) may influence many of these processes. White and brown adipose tissues (WAT and BAT, respectively) play a central role in body weight and energy expenditure. WAT is the major site for energy storage via triglyceride synthesis and mobilization via lipolysis. Uncoupling proteins (UCP1-4) are a family of mitochondria transport proteins that play a critical role in thermoregulatory heat production and maintenance of basal metabolic rate. BAT is able to dissipate energy as heat via uncoupled mitochondrial respiration by a mitochondrial anion carrier, uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1). UCP1 is predicted to contain 6 trans-membrane (TM) domains, a putative purine nucleotide-binding domain (PNBD) and three-mitochondrial energy transfer protein domains (ETPDs). Both amino and C-termini are predicted to be cytoplasmic.
Mouse UCP2 is a 309aa (human 309aa chromosome 7; ~95% homology) mitochondrial uncoupling protein (1). It is only 59% homologous with UCP1 found in BAT. UCP2 has wide tissue distribution in mouse tissues (brain, kidney, liver, BAT, heart and muscle). UCP2 may play a critical role in energy balance, body weight and thermoregulation (1,2).
