    at STAGE
  • N terminal GTPase tripartite domain, that binds and hydrolyzes GTP and contains four GTP binding motifs (G1G4)
  • a pleckstrin homology (PH) domain that binds phosphoinositides and this interaction appears to be crucial for its function
  • a middle domain that is important for oligomerization
  • a GTPase effector domain that fulfills an assembly function and stimulates GTPase activity
  • a proline-rich domain that interacts with SH3 domains in other proteins
  • a basic proteine-rich C-terminus
    interspecies homolog to murine dynamin
  • dynamin family
  • super-family of large GTPase proteins
  • CATEGORY transport
    text microtubule associated
    basic FUNCTION
  • involved in early stage of clathrin coated pits mediated endocytosis and formation of synaptic vesicles
  • has evolved to form structures that fit the dimensions of mitochondria
  • producing microtubule bundles
  • large multidomain GTPase dynamin that self-assembles around the necks of deeply invaginated coated pits at the plasma membrane and catalyzes vesicle scission
  • with DNM1L act redundantly in peroxisome biogenesis, which is under cell cycle control
  • mediates mitochondrial fission during interphasic growth and at cell division
  • involved in activity-dependent synaptic vesicle endocytosis and membrane recycling
  • has potentially a mechanochemical role during mitochondrial division
  • is a master regulator of membrane fission in endocytosis
  • likely affects amyloid generation through regulation of BACE1 subcellular localization and therefore its enzymatic activities
  • DNM1, DNM2, DNM3, decode action potential firing for synaptic vesicle recycling
  • implicated in vesicular protein transport processes relevant to synaptic and post-Golgi pathways, indicating a possible role in photoreceptor stability
  • role in podocyte foot process maintenance
  • GTPase protein that polymerise during their biological activity
  • exclusively brain-expressed GTPase localizing to the presynaptic terminal
  • causative role of DNM1 mutations in severe epileptic encephalopathies, presenting evidence for a predominant role of synaptic dysregulation in epileptic encephalopathies
  • DNM1 and DNM2 act as key mediators of sperm acrosome formation and function
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell organization/biogenesis
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS endocytosis transport
    signaling neurotransmission
