...Martin Jastroch; Rebecca Oelkrug; Susanne Keipert; Raul K. Suarez; Hans H. Hoppeler ABSTRACT Brown adipose tissue (BAT) enables adaptive thermoregulation through heat production that is catalyzed by mitochondrial uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1). BAT is frequently studied in rodent model organisms...

... generation of pro-oxidants. Insights into mitochondrial functioning show that oxygen consumption is principally coupled with either energy conversion as ATP or as heat, depending on whether the ATP-synthase or the mitochondrial uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1) is driving respiration. However, these two processes...

... ( Ohno et al., 2001 ). Because the rope tissue showed some morphological and biochemical hallmarks of BAT, we suspected that the rope tissue might be thermogenic. In mammalian BAT mitochondria, uncoupling protein 1 (UCP-1) is known to uncouple ATP production and dissipate proton-motive force...

... to cold acclimation. Mechanisms involved in avian NST are still unclear but may involve reduced energetic coupling in skeletal muscle mitochondria through the expression of an avian homologue of mammalian uncoupling proteins. The aim of this work was to investigate whether the expression of avian...

...Patrick Schrauwen; Matthijs Hesselink SUMMARY The uncoupling protein-1 (UCP1) homologues UCP2 and UCP3 are able to uncouple ATP production from mitochondrial respiration, thereby dissipating energy as heat and affecting energy metabolism efficiency. In contrast to UCP1, which plays an important...

... be converted into heat, and it has been proposed as one of the possible mechanisms underlying non-shivering thermogenesis in birds on the basis of data obtained mainly from ducklings acclimatized to cold conditions. The recent characterization of an uncoupling protein homolog in avian skeletal muscle...
