Background Information

MFN2, also named as CPRP1 and KIAA0214, belongs to the mitofusin family. It is an Essential transmembrane GTPase, which mediates mitochondrial fusion. MFN2 acts independently of the cytoskeleton. It therefore plays a central role in mitochondrial metabolism and may be associated with obesity and/or apoptosis processes. Overexpression of MFN2 induces the formation of mitochondrial networks. It plays an important role in the regulation of vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation. Defects in MFN2 are the cause of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 2A2 (CMT2A2). Defects in MFN2 are the cause of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 6 (CMT6). Ubiquitinated forms of Mfn2 (mono- and polyubiquitinated) are present during mitophagy.
