|Function||Mitochondrial outer membrane GTPase that mediates mitochondrial clustering and fusion (PubMed:12475957, PubMed:12759376, PubMed:27920125, PubMed:28114303). Membrane clustering requires GTPase activity (PubMed:27920125). It may involve a major rearrangement of the coiled coil domains (PubMed:27920125, PubMed:28114303). Mitochondria are highly dynamic organelles, and their morphology is determined by the equilibrium between mitochondrial fusion and fission events (PubMed:12475957, PubMed:12759376). Overexpression induces the formation of mitochondrial networks (in vitro) (PubMed:12759376). Has low GTPase activity (PubMed:27920125, PubMed:28114303).|
|Cellular Location||Mitochondrion outer membrane; Multi- pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Detected in kidney and heart (at protein level) (PubMed:12759376). Ubiquitous (PubMed:11950885, PubMed:12759376). Expressed at slightly higher level in kidney and heart (PubMed:12759376). Isoform 2 may be overexpressed in some tumors, such as lung cancers (PubMed:11751411)|

Essential transmembrane GTPase, which mediates mitochondrial fusion. Fusion of mitochondria occurs in many cell types and constitutes an important step in mitochondria morphology, which is balanced between fusion and fission. MFN1 acts independently of the cytoskeleton. Overexpression induces the formation of mitochondrial networks.
