Target

  • Function

    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. MFN2 acts independently of the cytoskeleton. It therefore plays a central role in mitochondrial metabolism and may be associated with obesity and/or apoptosis processes. Overexpression induces the formation of mitochondrial networks. Plays an important role in the regulation of vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation. Involved in the clearance of damaged mitochondria via selective autophagy (mitophagy). Is required for PARK2 recruitment to dysfunctional mitochondria. Involved in the control of unfolded protein response (UPR) upon ER stress including activation of apoptosis and autophagy during ER stress. Acts as an upstream regulator of EIF2AK3 and suppresses EIF2AK3 activation under basal conditions.
  • Tissue specificity

    Ubiquitous; expressed at low level. Highly expressed in heart and kidney.
  • Involvement in disease

    Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease 2A2
    Neuropathy, hereditary motor and sensory, 6A
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the TRAFAC class dynamin-like GTPase superfamily. Dynamin/Fzo/YdjA family. Mitofusin subfamily.
    Contains 1 dynamin-type G (guanine nucleotide-binding) domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications

    Phosphorylated by PINK1.
    Ubiquitinated by non-degradative ubiquitin by PARK2, promoting mitochondrial fusion; deubiquitination by USP30 inhibits mitochondrial fusion.
  • Cellular localization

    Mitochondrion outer membrane. Colocalizes with BAX during apoptosis.

Images

  • Immunofluorescence staining of HEK293 cells with purified ab124773 at a working dilution of 1/300, counter-stained with DAPI. The secondary antibody was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit (ab150077), used at a dilution of 1/1000. ab7291, a mouse anti-tubulin antibody (1/1000), was used to stain tubulin along with ab150120 (Alexa Fluor® 594 goat anti-mouse, 1/1000), shown in the top right hand panel. The cells were fixed in 100% methanol and permeabilized using 0.1% Triton X 100. The negative controls are shown in bottom middle and right hand panels - for negative control 1, purified ab124773 was used at a dilution of 1/500 followed by an Alexa Fluor® 594 goat anti-mouse antibody (ab150120) at a dilution of 1/500. For negative control 2, ab7291 (mouse anti-tubulin) was used at a dilution of 1/500 followed by an Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit antibody (ab150077) at a dilution of 1/400.

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab124773).

  • Immunohistochemical staining of paraffin embedded human kidney with purified ab124773 at a working dilution of 1/300. The secondary antibody used is HRP goat anti-rabbit IgG H&L (ab97051) at 1/500. The sample is counter-stained with hematoxylin. Antigen retrieval was perfomed using Tris-EDTA buffer, pH 9.0. PBS was used instead of the primary antibody as the negative control, and is shown in the inset.

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab124773).

  • Unpurified ab124773, at 1/50, staining Mitofusin 2 in formalin fixed paraffin embedded Human kidney tissue using immunohistochemistry.

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab124773).

    Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
