Uncoupling proteins (UCP), capable of increasing proton leakage across the inner mitochondrial membrane, may play a role in the temperature-dependent setting of energy turnover in animals (and their mitochondria). Therefore, the genes and expression of fish UCP were investigated in the Antarctic eelpout Pachycara brachycephalum and a temperate confamilial species, the common eelpout Zoarces viviparus. UCP full-length cDNA was amplified from liver and muscle using RT-PCR and rapid amplification… Expand
Reptilian uncoupling protein: functionality and expression in sub-zero temperatures
TLDR
Data support a physiological role of the repUCP in superoxide limitation by lizard mitochondria in situations of stressful oxidative reperfusion following a re-warming period in winter. Expand
Subspecies differences in thermal acclimation of mitochondrial function and the role of uncoupling proteins in killifish
TLDR
Changes in mitochondrial capacity, proton leak, uncoupling protein expression and fatty-acid-induced uncoupled with cold acclimation are greater in a putatively cold-adapted northern population of killifish compared with a southern population. Expand
Functional characterisation of UCP1 in the common carp: uncoupling activity in liver mitochondria and cold-induced expression in the brain
TLDR
The observed biochemical properties of proton leak strongly suggest that carp UCP1 is a functional uncoupling protein with broadly the same activatory and inhibitory characteristics as mammalian U CP1. Expand
Functional characterization of an uncoupling protein in goldfish white skeletal muscle
TLDR
It is suggested that goldfish UCP is functionally similar to the UCP found in other species, including mammals. Expand
Molecular cloning and tissue expression of uncoupling protein 1, 2 and 3 genes in Chinese perch (Siniperca chuatsi).
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis could shed new light on the evolutionary diversification of UCP gene family and the intestinal UCP1 and UCP2 mRNA level was significantly up-regulated after prolonged heat exposure, suggesting that the two paralogs might play different roles in intestine of Chinese perch. Expand
Functional characterization of an uncoupling protein in goldfish white skeletal muscle
TLDR
The results suggest that goldfish UCP is functionally similar to the UCP found in other species, including mammals. Expand
Mitochondrial uncoupling proteins UCP4 and UCP5 from the Pacific white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei
TLDR
Results confirmed UCPs as the first uncoupling mechanism reported in this species, but their role in the oxidative stress response remains to be confirmed. Expand
Gene expression survey of mitochondrial uncoupling proteins (UCP1/UCP3) in gilthead sea bream (Sparus aurata L.)
TLDR
Close association between UCP1 and UCP3 with the oxidative and metabolic tissue status is perhaps directly related to the ancestral protein UCP function, and allows the use of UCPs as lipotoxicity markers in ectothermic fish. Expand
Tissue-specific gene expression and functional regulation of uncoupling protein 2 (UCP2) by hypoxia and nutrient availability in gilthead sea bream (Sparus aurata): implications on the physiological significance of UCP1–3 variants
TLDR
Gene expression mapping by quantitative real-time PCR demonstrated that UCP2 expression is highly regulated at the transcriptional level, arising this UCP variant as an important piece of the complex trade-off between metabolic and redox sensors. Expand
Thermal acclimation in Antarctic fish: transcriptomic profiling of metabolic pathways.
TLDR
A molecular network is identified, which responds sensitively to warming beyond the realized ecological niche, and the shift from lipid to carbohydrate stores and usage may support warm hardiness, as the latter sustain anaerobic metabolism and may prepare for hypoxemic conditions that would develop upon warming Beyond the present acclimation temperature.

Uncoupling protein 1 in fish uncovers an ancient evolutionary history of mammalian nonshivering thermogenesis.
TLDR
The presence of UCP1 and UCP3 in ectothermic teleost fish species is shown and it is demonstrated that all three members of the core UCP family were already present before the divergence of ray-finned and lobe- Finned vertebrate lineages about 420 million years ago. Expand
Uncoupling protein 2 from carp and zebrafish, ectothermic vertebrates.
TLDR
The presence of UCP2 in these fish thus suggests the protein may have function(s) not related to thermogenesis, and the amino acid sequences of two new UCPs from ectothermic vertebrates are reported. Expand
Temperature-dependent molecular adaptations of active ion transport in temperate versus cold-adapted fish
TLDR
It is proposed that transcriptional shifts between different isoforms or post-translational modifications (e.g. membrane composition) or both play an important role in establishing the functional changes during cold acclimation (and cold adaptation), whereas total Na+/K+-ATPase protein number remains constant probably due to space constraints of the membranes. Expand
Temperature-dependent expression of cytochrome- c oxidase in Antarctic and temperate fish.
TLDR
The data suggest that seasonal cold acclimation of Z. viviparus results in a modification of the relationship between transcription and translation or posttranslational processes, suggesting that CCO expression at low temperatures may be limited either by nuclear CCO transcripts or by posttranscriptional processes. Expand
Abundant and constant expression of uncoupling protein 2 in the liver of red sea bream Pagrus major.
TLDR
It is suggested that the fish liver may adapt to a constantly high fat deposit by maintaining high UCP2 expression to constrain reactive oxygen species (ROS) production and protect hepatocytes from apoptosis. Expand
The uncoupling protein homologues: UCP1, UCP2, UCP3, StUCP and AtUCP.
TLDR
A major goal will be to investigate the possible roles of UCP2 and UCP3 in response to oxidative stress, lipid peroxidation, inflammatory processes, fever and regulation of temperature in certain specific parts of the body. Expand
Cloning and functional characterization of an uncoupling protein homolog in hummingbirds.
TLDR
The cDNA of an uncoupling protein (UCP) homolog has been cloned from the swallow-tailed hummingbird, Eupetomena macroura, and this is the first report of an UCP homolog in birds. Expand
Mitochondrial proliferation in the permanent vs. temporary cold: enzyme activities and mRNA levels in Antarctic and temperate zoarcid fish.
TLDR
The time course of the acclimation process indicates that regulation at the translational and posttranslational levels predominates in adjustment to moderate thermal challenges. Expand
Uncoupling Protein 2, in Vivo Distribution, Induction upon Oxidative Stress, and Evidence for Translational Regulation*
TLDR
It is shown that an upstream open reading frame located in exon two of theucp2 gene strongly inhibits the expression of the protein, which provides a mechanism by which expression can be strongly and rapidly induced under stress conditions. Expand
An uncoupling protein homologue putatively involved in facultative muscle thermogenesis in birds.
TLDR
The present data support the implication of avUCP in avian energy expenditure and its expression is restricted to skeletal muscle and its abundance was increased 1.3-fold in a chicken line showing diet-induced thermogenesis. Expand
