On the other hand, uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1) and peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma coactivator alpha (PGC1α) expression were significantly increased in the brown adipose tissue (BAT) of HP group.
Direct action of capsaicin in brown adipogenesis and activation of brown adipocytes.
Kyoto, Japan. In Cell Biochem Funct, Feb 2016
UNASSIGNED: The ingestion of capsaicin, the principle pungent component of red and chili peppers, induces thermogenesis, in part, through the activation of brown adipocytes expressing genes related to mitochondrial biogenesis and uncoupling such as peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (Ppar) γ coactivator-1α (Pgc-1α) and uncoupling protein 1 (Ucp1).
Breaking BAT: can browning create a better white?
Lübeck, Germany. In J Endocrinol, Jan 2016
Recently, it has been demonstrated that certain populations of white adipocytes can be 'browned', i.e., recruited to a more brown-like adipocyte, capable of thermogenesis through increased expression of uncoupling protein 1.

Expansion and/or stimulation of uncoupling protein-1 (UCP1)-positive adipose tissues have repeatedly demonstrated physiologically beneficial reductions in circulating glucose and lipids.

Brown adipose cells produce heat by means of uncoupler protein 1 (UCP1) from fatty acids and sugar.
