id: GO:0017077
name: oxidative phosphorylation uncoupler activity
namespace: molecular_function
type: go
obsolete: False

Description: Catalysis of 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.
