Gene: Opa1 (OPA1, mitochondrial dynamin like GTPase) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Opa1
Name: OPA1, mitochondrial dynamin like GTPase
RGD ID: 708423
Description: Exhibits kinase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including mitochondrion organization; positive regulation of neuron differentiation; and sensory organ development. Localizes to cytosol and extrinsic component of mitochondrial inner membrane. Colocalizes with mitochondrion. Used to study transient cerebral ischemia. Biomarker of several diseases, including artery disease (multiple); chronic kidney disease; fatty liver disease; ocular hypertension; and rhinitis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Behr syndrome; dominant optic atrophy plus syndrome; mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome 14; optic atrophy; and optic atrophy 1. Orthologous to human OPA1 (OPA1 mitochondrial dynamin like GTPase); PARTICIPATES IN mitochondria fusion pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,6-dinitrotoluene; 4-DAMP(1+); actinomycin D.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: dynamin-like 120 kDa protein, mitochondrial; LOC171116; MGC124921; mitochondrial OPA1; optic atrophy 1; optic atrophy 1 (autosomal dominant); optic atrophy 1 homolog; optic atrophy 1 homolog (human); optic atrophy 1-like protein; optic atrophy protein 1 homolog; RN protein
