Biological Activity

Mdivi 1 is a selective inhibitor of dynamin GTPase (IC50 = 1 - 10 μM); attenuates Dnm1- and Drp1-mediated mitochondrial division. Mdivi 1 inhibits mitochondrial outer membrane permeabilization (MOMP) and attenuates apoptosis. In cancer cell lines, Mdivi 1 reduces cell proliferation; in an animal model of ischemic retina Mdivi 1 treatment blocks apoptosis. In a cell model, Mdivi 1 protects against mutant huntington-induced damage and mitochondrial dysfunction. Mdivi 1 also inhibits autophagy and protects neurons from excitotoxicity.
