Background Information

UCP2 (uncoupling protein 2) is a member of the mitochondrial carrier protein super family located in the mitochondrial inner membrane. The UCPs differ greatly in tissue distribution: UCP1 is expressed only in brown adipose; UCP3 preferentially in skeletal muscle, brown adipose and heart; UCP4 and UCP5 mainly in the nervous system. In contract, UCP2 has a broad distribution and is implicated in a wide range of pathophysiological processes, including diabetes and cancer. This antibody was raised against the full-length UCP2 protein and may cross-react with UCP3. It is notable that UCP2 is known to have a very short half-life less than 1 hour.


Storage Instructions All the reagents are stored at 2-8°C. The kit is stable for 6 months from the date of receipt.
