The Identification of the Component in the Inner Membrane of Brown Adipose Tissue Mitochondria Responsible for Regulating Energy Dissipation
Part of the
book series (EXS, volume 32)
The proton conductance of the inner membrane of hamster brown adipose tissue mitochondria can be regulated in vitro by exogenous purine nucleotides, which “bind to a component on the outer face of the inner membrane. This unique mechanism has been proposed to represent the molecular site of non-shivering thermogenesis in this tissue. Using a photo-affinity analogue of ATP, we have identified the nucleotide binding component as a protein of 32,000 daltons.
