  • Human and rodent uncoupling protein (UCP)3 mRNA is upregulated after acute exercise. Moreover, exercise increases plasma levels of free fatty acid (FFA), which are also known to upregulate UCP3. We investigated whether the upregulation of UCP3 after exercise is an effect of exercise per se or an effect of FFA levels or substrate oxidation. Seven healthy untrained men [age: 22.7 +/- 0.6 yr; body mass index: 23.8 +/- 1.0 kg/m(2); maximal O2 uptake (VO2 max): 3,852 +/- 211 ml/min] exercised at 50… CONTINUE READING
