Utrophin, Drp1
This gene shares both structural and functional similarities with the dystrophin gene. It contains an actin-binding N-terminus, a triple coiled-coil repeat central region, and a C-terminus that consists of protein-protein interaction motifs which interact with dystroglycan protein components. The protein encoded by this gene is located at the neuromuscular synapse and myotendinous junctions, where it participates in post-synaptic membrane maintenance and acetylcholine receptor clustering. Mouse studies suggest that this gene may serve as a functional substitute for the dystrophin gene and therefore, may serve as a potential therapeutic alternative to muscular dystrophy which is caused by mutations in the dystrophin gene. Alternative splicing of the utrophin gene has been described; however, the full-length nature of these variants has not yet been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Disturbed mitochondrial and peroxisomal dynamics due to loss of MFF causes Leigh-like encephalopathy, optic atrophy and peripheral neuropathy.
Haack et al., Salzburg, Austria. In J Med Genet, Feb 2016
Components of the fission machinery are partly shared between mitochondria and peroxisomes, and inherited defects in two such components (dynamin-related protein (DRP1) and ganglioside-induced differentiation-associated protein 1 (GDAP1)) have been associated with human disease.
Liraglutide ameliorate non-alcohol fatty liver disease by enhancing mitochondrial architecture and promoting autophagy through SIRT1/SIRT3-FOXO3a pathway.
Tian et al., Shanghai, China. In Hepatol Res, Jan 2016
After liraglutide administration, the up-regulated mRNA and protein levels of mitochondrial fission and fusion related DRP1, OPA1 and respiratory chain related COMPLEX1, UCP2 demonstrated the enhancement of mitochondrial architecture which may attenuate the generation of ROS, while the diminished mRNA and protein level of P62 and increased levels of Beclin1, LC3II/I ratioindicated the promoting autophagy, which probably contribute to the ROS elimination.
