Secondary Information

Protein Function expressed in skeletal muscle,mitochondrial transporter/proton channel that participate in thermiogenesis.UCP3 expression may be stimulated when a large amount of glucose or FFA influx occcurs in skeletal muscles to prevent excessive production of ATP and ADP homeostasis.plays a role in peripheral CD4+ T cell activation and differentiation towards different effector Th subsets.
Biochemical Properties six membrane-spanning α-helix,that are connected by three long matrix loops and two shorter intermembrane (IMS) space loops.N- and C-termini are located in the IMS.The protein displays a tripartite structure.
