Abstract DRP1, a member of the dynamin family of large GTPases, mediates mitochondrial fission. In a recent issue of Developmental Cell, Cassidy-Stone et al. (2008) identified mdivi-1, a new DRP1 inhibitor that prevents mitochondria division and Bax-mediated mitochondrial outer membrane permeabilization during apoptosis.
