Result summary

Detailed summary for DNM1:


Systematic name:
Dynamin-related GTPase required for mitochondrial fission and morphology; assembles on the cytoplasmic face of mitochondrial tubules at sites at which division will occur; also participates in endocytosis and regulating peroxisome abundance

Upon the apoptotic stimuli of acetic acid and hydrogen peroxide, Fis1 inhibits Dnm1- and Mdv1-mediated mitochondrial fission and cell death, indicating a prosurvival function for Fis1 and a proapoptotic function for Dnm1 and Mdv1 during cell death
