The gene that makes the energy balance
Present in humans as in mice, the UCP genes play a fundamental role in the energy balance. There are in fact three types: the UCP 1, which are found in some fat cells (Brown adipocytes); and the UCP 2 and 3, located mainly in the muscles. In the absence of these genes UCP, an excess of calories is stored as fat. If they are enabled, the caloric surplus is burned and dissipates as heat.
