The UCPs are integral membrane proteins of the mitochondrial respiration from oxidative phosphorylation, diminishing the resulting production of ATP and instead yielding dissipative heat. The action of those proteins creates a futile cycle that decreases the metabolic efficiency of the organism. Thus UCPs provide new clue to obesity's causes. This study was… (More)
