Uncoupling Protein 2 (UCP2), mouse. Mouse UCP2 is a 309 amino acid mitochondrial uncoupling protein (Fleury et al. 1997). It is only 59% homologous with UCP1 found in brown adipose tissues. Mouse UCP2 (chromosome 7) has approximately 95% homology with human UCP2 located on chromosome 11 (Fleury et al. 1997). UCP2 has wide tissue distribution in mouse tissues (brain, kidney, liver, brown adipose tissue, heart, and muscle). UCP2 may play a critical role in energy balance, body weight, and thermoregulation (Fleury et al. 1997; Flier & Lowell 1997).

SPECIES REACTIVITIES: The antibody has not yet been tested for cross-reactivity to other species. The sequence used for immunization shows 92% homology to rat and 86% homology to human UCP2.


14 aa peptide sequence at the C-terminus of the mouse UCP2 (Fleury et al. 1997). The peptide has no significant homology with UCP1.
