Description

General description

Human UCP3 long form (UCP3L) is a 312 aa mitochondrial uncoupling protein. It is only 57% and 73% homologous with human UCP1 and UCP2 respectively. Like other UCPs, UCP3 is predicted to contain 6 transmembrane domains. The UCP3S lacks the 6th transmembrane domain and is only 275 aa long. UCP3 has preferential expression in muscle and it is unaffected by cold acclimation.

Specificity

Uncoupling Protein 3 (UCP3), human. It is expected that the antibody will recognize both the long and short forms (30-33 kDa & 24-27 kDa) however splice variants are expected and precise reactivity profile has yet to be determined. Human UCP3 long form (UCP3L) is a 312 aa mitochondrial uncoupling protein (Boss et al. 1997; Vidal-Puig et al. 1997). It is only 57% and 73% homologous with human UCP1 and UCP2 respectively. Like other UCPs, UCP3 is predicted to contain 6 transmembrane domains. The UCP3S lacks the 6th transmembrane domain and is only 275 aa long (Vidal-Puig et al. 1997). UCP3 has preferential expression in muscle and it is unaffected by cold acclimation.

Immunogen

14 amino acid peptide sequence (designated UCP32) mapping near the C-terminus of human UCP3 (Boss et al. 1997). The UCP32 peptide has no significant homology with UCP1 or UCP2.

Application

Anti-Uncoupling Protein 3 Antibody is an antibody against Uncoupling Protein 3 for use in ELISA, IH & WB.
