PA1-055 detects uncoupling protein-3 (UCP-3) mouse, rat, and canine tissues. This antibody will also detect recombit human UCP-3, but does not detect UCP-3 from mouse liver or kidney. PA1-055 has been successfully used in Western blot procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~30 kDa protein representing UCP-3 from rat heart homogenate. The PA1-055 immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues C R(295) A L M K V Q V L R E S P F(308) of mouse and rat UPC-3. This peptide differs from the porcine and human UCP-3 sequence by a single amino acid substitution. PA1-055 immunizing peptide (Cat. No. PEP-074) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.

The uncoupling proteins (UCPs) are found in the inner mitochondrial membranes and belong to a family of mitochondrial anion transport proteins that include the phosphate and oxologutarate carriers and the ADP/ATP translocator. Three UCP subtypes have been identified and cloned. UCP-1 is abundantly expressed in brown adipose tissue of mammals. UCP-1 allows proton re-entry into the mitochondrial matrix without involving the F0-F1 ATPase which produces heat instead of ATP. It is thought that UCP-2 and 3 also dissipate the mitochondrial proton gradient produced by the respiratory chain in cells and tissues within which they are expressed. Studies have shown UCP-2 to be expressed by a variety of tissues. UCP-3 is expressed predomitly in brown adipose tissue, skeletal muscle, at lower levels in heart and smooth muscle, and is absent in liver and kidney.
