Add to cart



PA1-24895 detects UCP3 from human, mouse, and rat samples. The corresponding sequence in rat and mouse UCP3 differ by 4 and 3 amino acids respectively. This antibody exhibits no cross reactivity with UCP1 or UCP2. PA1-24895 has been successfully used in Western blot and immunohistochemistry (paraffin) procedures. The PA1-24895 immunogen is a synthetic peptide, conjugated to KLH, corresponding to residues 254-267 of human UCP3 with an N-terminal added lysine. Store product as a concentrated solution. Centrifuge briefly prior to opening the vial. For short-term storage (1-2 weeks), product can be stored at 4°C. For long-term storage, aliquot and store product at -20° C or below, avioiding multiple freeze-thaw cycles.

The uncoupling proteins (UCPs) are found in the inner mitochodrial membranes and belong to a family of mitochondrial anion transport proteins that include 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 tissues of mammals. UCP 1 allows proton re-entry into mitochondrial matrix without involving the F0-F1 ATPase which produces heat instead of ATP. It is though that UCP 2 and 3 also dissipate the mitochondrial proton gradient produced by th e respiratory chaun 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 the heart and smooth muscle, and is absent in the liver and kidneys.
