Abstract


The Net2, Fis1, and Dnm1 proteins are required for the division of mitochondria in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Net2p has an amino-terminal region that contains predicted coiled-coil motifs and a carboxyl-terminal domain composed of WD-40 repeats. We found that the amino-terminal part of Net2p interacts with Fis1p, whereas the carboxyl-terminal region interacts with both Dnm1p and Fis1p. Overproduction of either domain of Net2p in yeast cells poisons mitochondrial fission, and the dominant-negative effect caused by the WD-repeats of Net2p is suppressed by increased levels of Dnm1p. Point mutations in the WD-region of Net2p or in the GTPase region of Dnm1p disrupt the normal Net2p-Dnm1p interaction, causing Net2p to lose its normal punctate distribution. Our results suggest that Dnm1p interacts with the WD-repeats of Net2p and in a GTP-dependent manner recruits Net2p to sites of mitochondrial division. Furthermore, our results indicate that Net2p is required for proper assembly of the mitochondrial fission components to regulate organelle division.
