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

  • Applications

    Blocking

  • Form
    Liquid
  • Additional notes


    This peptide may be used for neutralization and control experiments with the polyclonal antibody that reacts with this product and mouse UCP 3, catalog ab3477. Using a solution of peptide of equal volume and concentration to the corresponding antibody will yield a large molar excess of peptide (~ 70-fold) for competitive inhibition of antibody-protein binding reactions.

  • Function
    UCP 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 specificity
    Only in skeletal muscle and heart. Is more expressed in glycolytic than in oxidative skeletal muscles.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects 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 similarities
    Belongs to the mitochondrial carrier family.
    Contains 3 Solcar repeats.
  • Cellular localization
    Mitochondrion inner membrane.
  • Information by UniProt
