The biological role(s) proposed for UCP3 in energy homeostasis have been based primarily upon amino acid sequence homology to UCP1. Spontaneous mutations of UCP3 have been described in humans, but not in rodents. The functional consequences—or lack thereof—of these mutations in humans will be of great importance in elucidating the biology of this protein. The results of two such studies are summarized here.
