Function Dynamin-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. May also play a role in mitochondrial genome maintenance. Dynamin-like 120 kDa protein, form S1: Inactive form produced by cleavage at S1 position by OMA1 following stress conditions that induce loss of mitochondrial membrane potential, leading to negative regulation of mitochondrial fusion.
Post-translational Modifications PARL-dependent proteolytic processing releases an antiapoptotic soluble form not required for mitochondrial fusion. Cleaved by OMA1 at position S1 following stress conditions.
Cellular Localization Mitochondrion inner membrane Mitochondrion intermembrane space
