ヒトの寒冷適応とUCP1 遺伝子多型との関連

Translated title of the contribution: THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN HUMAN COLD ADAPTATION AND UCP1 GENOTYPE.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Modern human (homo sapience) have spread out over the world during the ice age, this means they needed toadapt to cold environments. Recent studies suggest that the importance of non-shivering thermogenesis (NST) generatingfrom brown adipose tissue (BAT), and the uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1) gene plays an important role in BATactivity. Thus, this manuscript summarizes the relationship between human cold adaptation and the importance ofUCP1 genotype to individual and populational differences of NST.
