(2007) WD40 protein Mda1 is purified with Dnm1 and forms a dividing ring for mitochondria before Dnm1 in Cyanidioschyzon merolae.
(21, 24) During the sequencing of the genome, comparative genome analysis identified five novel genes, including FtsZ, dynamin, and Mda1 (mitochondrial division apparatus 1) gene, which are related to mt- and pt-division machineries.
FtsZ1 did not form ring structures at the division site, and Mda1, which is part of the outer membrane mt-division machinery, was not recognized in ZED-downregulated cells.
Finally, the outer membrane mt-division machinery is composed of the Mda1 ring, the outer MD ring, the dynamin ring, and unknown rings.
