25205859 Mutations of the OPA3 gene can cause either autosomal dominant or autosomal recessive optic atrophy.
24136862 Report the results of a comprehensive study on OPA3 mutations, including the mutation spectrum and its prevalence in a large cohort of ADOA patients, the associated clinical phenotype and the functional characterisation of a newly identified OPA3 mutant.
23700088 A novel missense mutation identifies OPA3 as the cause of a complex neurological disorder with marked lower limb dystonia.
21036400 OPA1 mutations are the most common genetic defects identified in patients with suspected Autosomal-dominant optic atrophy (DOA), whereas OPA3 mutations are very rare in isolated optic atrophy cases.

20372962 OPA3, as an integral mitochondrial outer membane perotein, has a crucial role in mitochondrial fission, and provides a direct link between mitochondrial morphology and optic atrophy.
20350831 findings thus place the cellular metabolic defect of 3-methylglutaconic aciduria type III in the mitochondrion rather than the peroxisome and implicate loss of OPA3A rather than gain of OPA3B in disease etiology.
19319978 OPA1 mutations, mtDNA mutations, and OPA3 mutations in 980 patients Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy and autosomal dominant optic atrophy
