Sample text

When brown adipose is not generating heat, the protons return to the matrix through channels which are associated with the enzyme protein ATP synthetase, and much of the energy (perhaps two thirds) is stored as ATP, the remainder being lost as heat. Under these circumstances the rate of substrate breakdown is controlled by the availability of ADP from which ATP is synthesized. Heat output by brown adipose is triggered by noradrenaline released by sympathetic nerve endings. Additional channels through the inner mitochrondrial membrane become available.
