Secondary Information

Protein Function mitochondrial transporter protein.uncoupling oxidative phosphorylation from ATP synthesis. As a result, energy(ATP) is dissipated in the form of heat.UCP2 in protecting cancer cells from an excessive production of mitochondrial superoxide ions .The UCP system represents an acute and energetically costly mechanism to decrease ROS production in is estimated that 0.2%-2% of the O2 consumed in mitochondria is reduced to superoxide by electron leakage.
Biochemical Properties Acts as a dimer forming a proton channel.
