Dynamin related protein 1 (Drp1), also known as Dynamin-like protein 1, mediates outter mitochondrial membrane fission in mammilian cells. Like other members of the Dynamin superfamily of GTPases, Drp1 contains a N-terminal tripartate GTP-binding domain and exists as a T-shaped dimer with a head, leg, and stalk. The addition of GTP induces head and stalk rearrangement resulting in membrane constriction. Drp1 has been shown to affect mitochondrial morphology and places a significant role in mitochondrial and peroxisomal fission in mammilian cells. During apoptosis, Drp1 translocates from the cytosol to mitochondria and localizes to potential organelle division sites. Studies show Drp1 inhibition averts cell death, reinforcing to the critical role that mitochondrial fission plays in apoptosis.
