26642043 GTPBP3 plays a role in the regulation of UCP2 protein through AMPK signaling.
26526553 Findings in 20 242 individuals suggest that UCP2 gene polymorphisms may cause liver dysfunction through the interaction with body fat rather than alcohol intake.
26450681 Estrogens may increase mitochondrial reactive oxygen species production by repressing uncoupling proteins including UCP2.
26402942 Polymorphism of UCP2 gene is being associated with obesity and diabetes mellitus type 2 among residents of the Moscow Region.
26356408 UCP2 is expressed in human cumulus cells.
26275882 UCP2 as a selective modulator of single channel MCU dependent mitochondrial Ca2+ inward current.
26218518 Data reported here suggest that the UCP2 -866A/55Val/Ins haplotype is associated with an increased risk for DKD and with a lower eGFR in T2DM patients
26181366 ectopic overexpression of UCP2 in a HCC cell line with low endogenous UCP2 expression, HLE, significantly decreased mitochondrial superoxide induction by the anti-cancer drug GEM.
26107945 exogenous expression of miR133a or knockdown of UCP-2 in MCF-7/Dox cells can sensitize their reaction to the treatment of Doxorubicin
26082030 Dissipation of the proton gradient by Ucp2 is not the only determinant of the phagocytic capacity and that anion transfer or nucleotide binding by Ucp2 is also essential for Ucp2-mediated engulfment of apoptotic cells.
