ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 - 10 µg/ml.

Target

  • 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
  • Database links
  • Form
    UCP3 is preferentially expressed in muscle
  • Alternative names
    • Mitochondrial uncoupling protein 3 antibody
    • SLC25A9 antibody
    • Solute carrier family 25 member 9 antibody
    • UCP 3 antibody
    • UCP3 antibody
    • UCP3_HUMAN antibody

    Predicted band size : 34 kDa
    Observed band size : 34 kDa


    Exposure time : 4 minutes
  • ICC/IF image of ab41038 stained human HeLa cells. The cells were methanol fixed (5 min), permabilised in TBS-T (20 min) and incubated with the antibody (ab41038, 5µg/ml) for 1h at room temperature. 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine was used to quench autofluorescence and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red). DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue).
