Uncoupling Protein 1 (UCP1), mouse. Mouse/rat UCP1 is a 307 amino acid mitochondrial uncoupling protein (Bouillaud et al. 1986; Ridley et al. 1986; Kozak et al. 1988; Cassard et al. 1990; Miroux et al. 1993). It is only 59% homologous with UCP2 (Fleury et al. 1997). Human UCP1 is located on chromosome 4 (Bouillaud et al. 1986; Ridley et al. 1986; Kozak et al. 1988; Cassard et al. 1990; Miroux et al. 1993). UCP1 is primarily expressed in brown adipose tissues.

The antibody has not yet been tested for cross-reactivity to other species. The sequence used for immunization shows 100% homology to rat, 91% with golden hamster, 83% with rabbit and 75% with human and canine UCP1.


A 12 aa peptide at the C-terminus of the mouse/rat UCP1 (Bouillaud et al. 1986; Ridley et al. 1986; Kozak et al. 1988; Cassard et al. 1990; Miroux et al. 1993).


Detect Uncoupling Protein 1 using this Anti-Uncoupling Protein 1 Antibody validated for use in ELISA & WB.

Western Blotting: 1-10 μg/mL using Chemiluminescence technique. An antibody made to this epitope has detected a protein of ~32 kDa in brown adipose tissues (Feil & Rafael 1994).

ELISA: 1:10,000-1:100,000; using 50-100 ng UCP1 control peptide/well.

Optimal working dilutions must be determined by end user.

Physical form

Affinity purified immunoglobulin. Liquid in PBS with less than 0.1% sodium azide.
