N-Oleoylphenylalanine | Endogenous Uncoupler of Mitochondrial Respiration

N-Oleoylphenylalanine is an endogenous lipoamino acid produced via the action of a secreted enzyme PM20D1 produced by adipocytes. N-Oleoylphenylalanine binds directly to mitochondria and functions as an endogenous uncoupler of UCP1-independent respiration and is the most potent in the group of structurally different lipoamino acids evaluated. Mice treated with an analog, C18-1-Leu, were found to have improved glucose homeostasis and increased energy expenditure.1
