    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.

    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.

    Aim24 and MICOS modulate respiratory function, tafazzin-related cardiolipin modification and mitochondrial architecture

    Max Emanuel Harner et al.
    Interactions between Aim24 and the mitochondrial outer and inner membrane contact site complex (MICOS) are essential for mitochondrial ultrastructure, lipid composition and oxidative phosphorylation.

    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.

    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.

    Matrix metalloproteinase 1 modulates invasive behavior of tracheal branches during entry into Drosophila flight muscles

    Julia Sauerwald et al.
    Tracheal-derived matrix metalloproteinase 1 activity sustains tracheal branch invasion into myotubes by modulating ECM properties and dynamic behavior of sprouting tip cells.

    Energy imbalance alters Ca2+ handling and excitability of POMC neurons

    Lars Paeger et al.
    The development of diet-dependent obesity results in the deterioration of calcium homeostasis in pro-opiomelanocortin-expressing neurons and impaired function of the same neurons.
