InnateDB Annotation
Summary
MFN1 deletion causes inability of the cell to undergo mitochondrial fusion, and therefore exhibit impaired induction of interferons and pro-inflammatory cytokines in response to viral infection - which results in increased viral replication.
InnateDB Annotation from Orthologs
Summary
[Mus musculus] Mfn1 deletion causes inability of the cell to undergo mitochondrial fusion, and therefore exhibit impaired induction of interferons and pro-inflammatory cytokines in response to viral infection - which results in increased viral replication.
Entrez Gene
Summary The protein encoded by this gene is a mediator of mitochondrial fusion. This protein and mitofusin 2 are homologs of the Drosophila protein fuzzy onion (Fzo). They are mitochondrial membrane proteins that interact with each other to facilitate mitochondrial targeting. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
