Thermogenesis

Thermogenesis means simply the production of heat and can be defined as the dissipation of energy through the production of heat and occurs in specialized tissues including brown adipose tissue and skeletal muscle. It is a common mechanism to increase body temperature resides in the own mitochondria.

These power centrals provide with heat when is necessary through uncoupling proteins (UCPs), which serve as proton carriers from mitochondrial inner membrane (MIM) to matrix and thereby shunt energy from electron transport chain during ATP synthesis.

The term ‘thermogenesis’ derives from the Latin word thermos for heat. All metabolic processes in animals (and plants) produce heat, as a reflection of thermodynamic inefficiency, and are therefore thermogenic. The process of heat production is usually encountered in two settings: that due to meal ingestion and in response to a cold environment.
