Gene: MFN1 (mitofusin 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MFN1
Name: mitofusin 1
Description: Exhibits GTPase activity and identical protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including GTP metabolic process; mitochondrial fusion; and mitochondrial membrane fusion. Localizes to integral component of mitochondrial outer membrane and outer mitochondrial membrane protein complex. Biomarker of Alzheimer's disease.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
