Application Notes Summary

Default Literature Icon

Mitofusin 1 (Mfn1) and Mitofusin 2 (Mfn2) are two highly homologous mitochondrial outer membrane proteins necessary for mitochondrial fusion. Mitochondrial fusion is necessary to maintain mitochondrial health and function, and mitochondrial dysfunction is implicated in diseases such as Charcot-Marie-Tooth 2A and dominant optic atrophy, as well as in multiple tissue types. Phosphorylation of these proteins has not been widely studied. Our data show detection of Mfn2 protein in three neuronal tissues: retina, optic nerve, and the superior colliculus region of the brain in a mouse model, DBA/2J, a widely accepted model for glaucoma.
