REVIEW
Wiesława Jarmuszkiewicz, Andrzej Woyda-Płoszczyca
Uncoupling proteins (UCPs), members of mitochondrial carrier family, are present in mitochondrial inner membrane and mediate free fatty acid-activated, purine-nucleotide-inhibited H+ re-uptake. UCPs can modulate the tightness of coupling between mitochondrial respiration and ATP synthesis. A physiological function of the first described UCP, UCP1 or termogenin, present in mitochondria of mammalian brown adipose tissues is well established. UCP1 plays a role in nonshivering thermogenesis in mammals. The widespread presence of UCPs in eukaryotes, in non-thermogenic tissues of animals, plants and in unicellular organisms implies that these proteins may elicit other functions than thermogenesis...
