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
    • Uncoupling protein 3 antibody
    • Uncoupling protein 3 mitochondrial proton carrier antibody

    Secondary
    Goat polyclonal Secondary Antibody to Mouse IgM - H&L (HRP), pre-adsorbed at 1/5000 dilution

    Developed using the ECL technique.

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size: 34 kDa
    Observed band size: 30 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at: 17 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.


    Exposure time: 2 minutes
