Human PM20D1 immunoassay kit
PM20D1 is a bidirectional N-fatty-acyl amino acid synthase/hydrolase that regulates the production of N-fatty-acyl amino acids. These metabolites are endogenous chemical uncouplers of mitochondrial respiration. In an UCP1-independent manner, maybe through interaction with mitochondrial transporters, they promote proton leakage into the mitochondrial matrix. PM20D1 may indirectly regulate the bodily dissipation of chemical energy as heat through thermogenic respiration.
