Abstract

Mitochondria are highly dynamic organelles that constantly fuse and divide. Dynamin-related GTPases are the core components of the machineries that mediate mitochondrial fusion and fission. The role and regulation of these machineries are currently under intense investigation. Recently, members of the BCL2 family of proteins, conserved regulators of apoptosis, have been implicated in the regulation of mitochondrial dynamics. Here, we review the functions of mitochondrial fusion and fission in apoptotic and nonapoptotic cells and how members of the BCL2 family of proteins regulate these functions.
