...lving metabolites of the gas nitric oxide (NO). These lipids, including LNO2, then become attached to two proteins adenine nucleotide translocase and uncoupling protein 2 changing their shape such that they allow a proton leak across the mitochondrial membrane. The leak lowers the proton gradient just enough ...

HIV-1 protease inhibitor induced oxidative stress in pancreatic B-cells: thymoquinone protection

...athione, whereas mitochondrial SOD levels remained unaffected in pancreatic beta-cells (INS-1 cells) exposed to nelfinavir. However, the mitochondrial uncoupling protein (UCP2) levels were up-regulated during nelfinavir induced oxidative stress and directly affected the ATP levels in these cells. A significant ...

Stowers Institute's Baumann Lab identifies key step in maturation pathway of telomerase

...nternal piece of RNA and gluing the flanking ends together are tightly coupled during intron removal. To our knowledge this is the first example where uncoupling of the first and second step of splicing generates a functional product in a single-step reaction."

Making metabolism more inefficient can reduce obesity

...gues at Pennington Biomedical Research Center found that this may not be the case. They knocked-out two thermogenic genes in mice, Ucp1 (mitochondrial uncoupling protein) and Gdm (glycerol 3-phosphate dehydrogenase) and then fed the mice a high-fat diet while rearing them at a cool 20 C (68 F). Surprisingly...

Killer carbs -- Monash scientist finds the key to overeating as we age

...ement as to when our hunger is satisfied," Dr Andrews said. The free radicals also try to attack the hunger neurons, but these are protected by the uncoupling protein 2 (UCP2). Dr Andrews said the reduction in the appetite-suppressing cells could be one explanation for the complex condition of adult-onset...

Study confirms that low-calorie sweeteners are helpful in weight control

...evious studies in humans have shown that low-calorie sweeteners can be helpful in weight control. Everything old is new again: similar studies on the uncoupling of sweetness and calories in humans were conducted back in 1989 and to no great effect, noted Drewnowski. Among criticisms of the study identified b...
