    Mechanical force induces mitochondrial fission

    Sebastian Carsten Johannes Helle et al.
    Mechanically stimulating mitochondria causes them to divide via the recruitment of the mitochondrial fission machinery to the mechanically strained site, showing that intracellular organelles can be mechanoresponsive.

    Mitochondrial fusion supports increased oxidative phosphorylation during cell proliferation

    Cong-Hui Yao et al.
    In addition to increasing glycolysis, some proliferating cells exhibiting the Warburg effect also increase oxidative phosphorylation through mitochondrial fusion.

    A mitofusin-dependent docking ring complex triggers mitochondrial fusion in vitro

    Tobias Brandt et al.
    A combination of an in vitro mitochondrial fusion assay with electron cryo-tomography (cryo-ET) reveals distinct steps and protein complexes during mitofusin-dependent fusion between adjacent mitochondrial outer membranes.

    Cdc48 regulates a deubiquitylase cascade critical for mitochondrial fusion

    Tânia Simões et al.
    A signaling pathway—comprising a linear sequence of the ubiquitin-selective chaperone Cdc48/p97 and the deubiquitylases Ubp12 and Ubp2—synergistically regulates mitochondrial fusion, thereby fine-tuning ubiquitylation of the mitofusin Fzo1.

    Actin filaments target the oligomeric maturation of the dynamin GTPase Drp1 to mitochondrial fission sites

    Wei-ke Ji et al.
    A key cellular process is controlled by altering a balance, rather than through an off/on mechanism.

    Mitochondrial fusion but not fission regulates larval growth and synaptic development through steroid hormone production

    Hector Sandoval et al.
    The dual role of Drosophila Mitofusin in steroid hormone production and cholesterol ester storage, which is evolutionary conserved by the combined expression of the two mammalian Mitofusins, ensures proper synaptic development.

    An evidence based hypothesis on the existence of two pathways of mitochondrial crista formation

    Max E Harner et al.
    Lamellar and tubular cristae in mitochondria form by two different molecular pathways that form both involve F1FO-ATP synthase dimers and the MICOS complex, but formation of lamellar cristae also relies on Mgm1/Opa1.

    MUL1 acts in parallel to the PINK1/parkin pathway in regulating mitofusin and compensates for loss of PINK1/parkin

    Jina Yun et al.
    By reducing mitochondrial fusion, MUL1 compensates for the mutations in PINK1 or parkin that underlie certain cases of Parkinson's disease.

    A mitochondria-anchored isoform of the actin-nucleating spire protein regulates mitochondrial division

    Uri Manor et al.
    An actin nucleating protein, Spire1C, localizes to the mitochondrial outer membrane and interacts with the endoplasmic reticulum-anchored formin protein INF2 to drive mitochondrial fission.
