    text
  • MFF and FIS1 are both tail anchored in the mitochondrial outer membrane
  • basic FUNCTION
  • novel component of a conserved membrane fission pathway used for constitutive and induced fission of mitochondria and peroxisomes
  • mitochondrial fission requires the dynamin-like protein DNM1L that is recruited to the mitochondrial surface, possibly through the membrane-anchored protein FIS1 or MFF
