Uncoupling Protein 2 (UCP2), human. Human UCP2 is a 309 amino acid mitochondrial uncoupling protein (Fleury et al. 1997; Gimeon et al. 1997). It is only 59% homologous with UCP1 found in brown adipose tissues. UCP2 has wide tissue distribution in 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; Gimeon 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 100% homology to mouse and rat UCP2 and 92% homology with canine, porcine and bovine.


13 aa peptide sequence near the 3rd and 4th transmembrane domain of human UCP2 (Fleury et al. 1997; Gimeon et al. 1997). The peptide has no significant homology with UCP1, UCP3 or UCP4 (Boss et al. 1997).
