The regulation of body weight depends upon the 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 transprt 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 transmembrane (TM) domains, a putative purine nucleotide-binding domain (PNBD) and three mitochondrial energy transfer protein domains (ETPDs). Both N- and C-termini are predicted to be cytoplasmic. UCP5 may be alternatively spliced to produced at least 3 transcripts: UCP5L has a unique 22aa N-terminal sequence; UCP5S is missing 3aa (23-25aa) and UCP5SI has 31aa insertion between TM II-IV.
