Gene: Ucp2 (uncoupling protein 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Ucp2
Name: uncoupling protein 2
RGD ID: 3932
Description: Predicted to enable several functions, including C4-dicarboxylate transmembrane transporter activity; GDP binding activity; and inorganic anion transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to lead ion; liver regeneration; and negative regulation of insulin secretion involved in cellular response to glucose stimulus. Predicted to be located in mitochondrial membrane. Used to study hypertension; metabolic dysfunction-associated steatotic liver disease; transient cerebral ischemia; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Biomarker of congestive heart failure; hypothyroidism; obstructive jaundice; steatotic liver disease (multiple); and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in carotid artery disease; diabetic neuropathy; end stage renal disease; hypertension; and obesity. Orthologous to human UCP2 (uncoupling protein 2); PARTICIPATES IN forkhead class A signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-catechin; (R)-lipoic acid; (R)-noradrenaline.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Previously known as: dicarboxylate carrier SLC25A8; mitochondrial uncoupling protein 2; solute carrier family 25 member 8; UCP 2; uncoupling protein 2 (mitochondrial, proton carrier); Uncoupling protein 2 mitochondrial; Uncoupling protein 2, mitochondrial
