GO Term oxidative phosphorylation uncoupler activity

Name oxidative phosphorylation uncoupler activity
Narrow Synonyms mitochondrial uncoupling protein activity | uncoupling protein activity
Definition Enables the transfer of protons from mitochondrial intermembrane space into mitochondrial matrix, dissipating the proton gradient across the mitochondrial inner membrane established by the electron transport chain during the oxidative phosphorylation (proton leak). Proton leak uncouples the processes of electron transport/proton generation and ATP synthesis.
