A specific immunoassay of uncoupling protein (UCP) and measurement of GDP binding were used to study the chronic responses of brown adipose tissue (BAT) mitochondria from rats made obese by dietary means (cafeteria rats) and from obese rats subsequently fed a standard diet (post-cafeteria rats). We studied the response to fasting in order to assess the… CONTINUE READING
