Evolution and functional characterisation of uncoupling proteins in vertebrates

The evolution of UCP1 in vertebrates – a summary This thesis unravels the evolution of UCP1, a crucial protein for heat generation recruited during adaptive NST. In eutherian mammals UCP1 uncouples the respiratory chain from ATP synthesis to dissipate proton motive force as heat but the question...
