24824927 miR-19b targets 3'UTR sequences of Mfn1 genes inhibit the expression of Mfn1
24722297 A fine balance of Mfn1 levels is maintained by MARCH5-mediated quality control on acetylated Mfn1.

21839087 mitochondrial dynamics, particularly those mediated by the mitofusins, play a role in endothelial cell function and viability.
21615408 Our data supports a model whereby the translocation of parkin to damaged mitochondria induces the degradation of mitofusin 1 leading to impaired mitochondrial fusion
21408142 The impact of mutations in endogenous PINK1 and Parkin on the ubiquitination of mitochondrial fusion and fission factors and the mitochondrial network structure, was investigated.
21173115 Mitofusin degradation by mitochondria-associated Parkin inhibits the fusion of damaged mitochondria with healthy mitochondria to facilitate the selective elimination of the former by autophagy.

20103533 lack of MARCH5 results in mitochondrial elongation, which promotes cellular senescence by blocking Drp1 activity and/or promoting accumulation of Mfn1 at the mitochondria
19754948 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19168699 IL-6 induces Bcl-2 expression to perform cytoprotective functions in response to oxygen toxicity, and that this effect is mediated by alterations in the interactions between Bak and Mfn1/Mfn2. Bcl-2 inhibited the interaction between Bak and Mfn1.
18832378 Fis1 and Mfn1 activities influence mitochondrial signal generation thereby insulin exocytosis.
17718388 Precise interactions between a few proteins are required for mitochondrial fusion and division. Among them Drp1, Mfn1, Mfn2 and Opal are considered the most important.
15961417 Mfn1, Mfn2, NRF-2 and COX IV mRNA were increased 24 h post-exercise in skeletal muscle
15509649 OPA1 functionally requires mitofusin 1 to regulate mitochondrial fusion
12475957 Mfn1 mediates mitochondrial fusion in human cells
11950885 Results show that Fzo homologs mitofusin 1 and 2 are ubiquitous mitochondrial membrane proteins that interact with each other to facilitate mitochondrial targeting.
