Overview

  • Product nameAnti-UCP3 antibody
    See all UCP3 primary antibodies
  • Description
    Rabbit polyclonal to UCP3
  • SpecificityDetects UCP 3 from human, dog and mouse tissues. This antibody does not detect UCP 3 from mouse liver or kidney. Some customers have used this antibody successfully in rat however our latest tests were unsuccessful and therefore we can no longer guarantee the reactivity of this species.

Properties

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab3477 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 34 kDa.Can be blocked with UCP3 peptide (ab4994).

By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~30 kDa protein representing UCP 3 from human and mouse skeletal muscle lysate.

Target

  • FunctionUCP are mitochondrial transporter proteins that create proton leaks across the inner mitochondrial membrane, thus uncoupling oxidative phosphorylation. As a result, energy is dissipated in the form of heat. May play a role in the modulation of tissue respiratory control. Participates in thermogenesis and energy balance.
  • Tissue specificityOnly in skeletal muscle and heart. Is more expressed in glycolytic than in oxidative skeletal muscles.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in UCP3 may be involved in obesity (OBESITY) [MIM:601665]. It is a condition characterized by an increase of body weight beyond the limitation of skeletal and physical requirements, as the result of excessive accumulation of body fat.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the mitochondrial carrier family.
    Contains 3 Solcar repeats.
  • Cellular localizationMitochondrion inner membrane.
  • Information by UniProt
  • Database links
  • FormUCP3 is preferentially expressed in muscle

    ab3477 at a 1/1000 dilution in Western blot. The left hand lane shows the blot of a lysate from muscle mitochondria from a UCP3 knockout mouse, the middle lane shows the same preparation from a wild type mouse, whilst the right hand lane shows a lysate prepared from a wild type rat. An HRP conjugated donkey anti-rabbit antibody was used as the secondary.

Thank you for your reply.

Regarding the UCP3 results, I agree that the lower band would be the UCP# signal but I am not sure what the higher molecular weight band could be. It may just be non-specific binding of the antibody, or it may be pos...

Thank you for your call today and for letting us know about the trouble with ab3477. I am hopeful that the background bands will be reduced by loading less protein, further diluting the antibody, and switching to a BSA block. However, if the high backg...

Thank you for contacting Abcam. I have talked to the lab about ab3477 and they have informed me that it is not uncommon for UCP3 antibodies to detect several isoforms of UCP3 in mouse tissue; isoforms 1 & 3 are routinely detected by the antibody. It ma...
