Long-term hypoxia modulates expression of key genes regulating adipose function in the late-gestation ovine fetus.

Abstract

A major function of abdominal adipose in the newborn is nonshivering thermogenesis. Uncoupling protein (UCP) UCP1 and UCP2 play major roles in thermogenesis. The present study tested the hypothesis that long-term hypoxia (LTH) modulates expression of UCP1 and UCP2, and key genes regulating expression of these genes in the late-gestation ovine fetus.
