|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||NP_068605, 7350|
|Predicted||Mouse, Rat, Dog|
|Calculated MW||33005 Da|
|Other Names||Mitochondrial brown fat uncoupling protein 1, UCP 1, Solute carrier family 25 member 7, Thermogenin, UCP1, SLC25A7, UCP|
|Format||0.5 mg IgG/ml in Tris saline (20mM Tris pH7.3, 150mM NaCl), 0.02% sodium azide, with 0.5% bovine serum albumin|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Goat Anti-UCP1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||UCP are mitochondrial transporter proteins that create proton leaks across the inner mitochondrial membrane, thus uncoupling oxidative phosphorylation from ATP synthesis. As a result, energy is dissipated in the form of heat.|
|Cellular Location||Mitochondrion inner membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Brown adipose tissue.|

Mitochondrial uncoupling proteins (UCP) are members of the family of mitochondrial anion carrier proteins (MACP). UCPs separate oxidative phosphorylation from ATP synthesis with energy dissipated as heat, also referred to as the mitochondrial proton leak. UCPs facilitate the transfer of anions from the inner to the outer mitochondrial membrane and the return transfer of protons from the outer to the inner mitochondrial membrane. They also reduce the mitochondrial membrane potential in mammalian cells. Tissue specificity occurs for the different UCPs and the exact methods of how UCPs transfer H+/OH- are not known. UCPs contain the three homologous protein domains of MACPs. This gene is expressed only in brown adipose tissue, a specialized tissue which functions to produce heat.
