Summaries for MTFP1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MTFP1 Gene

  • MTP18 is a mitochondrial protein and downstream target of the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (see PIK3CA, MIM 171834) signaling pathway that plays a role in cell viability and mitochondrial dynamics (Tondera et al., 2004 [PubMed 15155745]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

GeneCards Summary for MTFP1 Gene

MTFP1 (Mitochondrial Fission Process 1) is a Protein Coding gene.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MTFP1 Gene

  • Involved in the mitochondrial division probably by regulating membrane fission. Loss-of-function induces the release of cytochrome c, which activates the caspase cascade and leads to apoptosis.
