...C.B. Chan; N. Kashemsant UCPs (uncoupling proteins) can regulate cellular ATP production by uncoupling oxidative phosphorylation. UCP2 is expressed in islet β-cells and its induction reduces glucose-stimulated insulin secretion. Under physiological conditions, superoxide, formed as a by-product...

..., e.g. uncoupling proteins (UCPs) 2 and 5, and some anion transporters, and induction of UCP1 and UCP3 in white fat by pharmacological treatments that reduce adiposity. Negative correlation between expression of UCPs in adipocytes and accumulation of white fat was also found. Expression of UCP1 from...

...T. Stephenson; H. Budge; A. Mostyn; S. Pearce; R. Webb; M. E. Symonds During late gestation, the maturation of fetal adipose tissue is geared towards the synthesis of high levels of uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1), which is unique to brown adipose tissue. At birth, rapid activation of UCP1 ensures...
