Mitofusin family (IPR027094)

Short name: Mitofusin_fam

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


The mitofusin family consists of the transmembrane GTPase Fzo and mammalian homologues mitofusin-1 and mitofusin-2 [PMID: 11950885]. Fzo/mitofusins mediate mitochondrial fusion [PMID: 12527753, PMID: 9786948]. Uncharacterised bacterial proteins are also included in this family.
