Cold-induced changes in the energy coupling and the UCP3 level in rodent skeletal muscles.


The mechanism of thermoregulatory uncoupling of respiration and phosphorylation in skeletal muscles has been studied. It is found that 24 h cold exposure results in (i) a 3-fold increase in the amount of UCP3 protein in rat skeletal muscle mitochondria, and (ii) pronounced lowering of the membrane potential in isolated rat or mouse skeletal muscle… (More)
