Table 1 List or thermoregulatory or beige markers employed in this study and their function

From: Evaluation of markers of beige adipocytes in white adipose tissue of the mouse

Thermoregulatory or Beige marker Function
UCP1 (Uncoupling protein 1) Uncouples respiration from energy production
CIDEA (Cell Death-Inducing DFFA-Like Effector A) Modulates uncoupling action of UCP1
Cox8b (Cytochrome C Oxidase Subunit VIIIb) Subunit of oxidase involved in respiratory electron transport
FGF21 (Fibroblast Growth Factor 21) Modulates glucose, lipid, and energy homeostasis: induces beigeing in WAT
Car4 (Carbonic Anhydrase 4) Acid–base balance (bicarbonate/CO2 equilibrium)
P2RX5 (Purinergic Receptor P2X, Ligand-Gated Ion Channel 5) Purinergic Signaling
PAT-2 (Proton-Coupled Amino Acid Transporter-2) Amino acid transport
CITED1 (Cbp/p300-Interacting Transactivator with Glu/Asp-rich Carboxy-Terminal Domain 1) Transcriptional coactivator
CD137/Tnfrs9 (Tumor Necrosis Factor Receptor Superfamily, Member 9) Inflammatory reactions
TBX1 (T-Box 1) Transcription factor (proliferation and differentiation of cells during organogenesis)
TMEM26 (Transmembrane Protein 26) Unknown
