  • FunctionDynamin-related GTPase required for mitochondrial fusion and regulation of apoptosis. May form a diffusion barrier for proteins stored in mitochondrial cristae. Proteolytic processing in response to intrinsic apoptotic signals may lead to disassembly of OPA1 oligomers and release of the caspase activator cytochrome C (CYCS) into the mitochondrial intermembrane space.
  • Tissue specificityHighly expressed in retina. Also expressed in brain, testis, heart and skeletal muscle. Isoform 1 expressed in retina, skeletal muscle, heart, lung, ovary, colon, thyroid gland, leukocytes and fetal brain. Isoform 2 expressed in colon, liver, kidney, thyroid gland and leukocytes. Low levels of all isoforms expressed in a variety of tissues.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in OPA1 are a cause of optic atrophy type 1 (OPA1) [MIM:165500]. OPA1 is a dominantly inherited optic neuropathy occurring in 1 in 50,000 individuals that features progressive loss in visual acuity leading, in many cases, to legal blindness.
    Defects in OPA1 are the cause of optic atrophy 1 with deafness (OPA1D) [MIM:125250]. Some individuals with mutations in OPA1 manifest also ophthalmoplegia and myopathy.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the dynamin family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    PARL-dependent proteolytic processing releases an antiapoptotic soluble form not required for mitochondrial fusion.
  • Cellular localizationMitochondrion inner membrane. Mitochondrion intermembrane space.
