Uncoupling protein-3: clues in an ongoing mitochondrial mystery.


Uncoupling protein (UCP) 3 (UCP3) is a mitochondrial anion carrier protein with highly selective expression in skeletal muscle. Despite a great deal of interest, to date neither its molecular mechanism nor its biochemical and physiological functions are well understood. Based on its high degree of homology to the original UCP (UCP1), early studies examined… (More)
