Uncoupling: Secret to Fat loss and Health

Uncoupling protein, aka thermogenin, are proteins found in the inner mitochondrial membrane of the cell. Protons generated in the Kreb cycle leave the mitochondria via the electron transport chain, and then re-enter the mitochondria via the ATPase enzyme for the synthesis of ATP. This is called coupled respiration. With uncoupled res piration, protons re-enter the … Continue reading Uncoupling: Secret to Fat loss and Health
