Term Information [More information on mitochondrial fragmentation involved in apoptotic process]

Accession
GO:0043653
Name
mitochondrial fragmentation involved in apoptotic process
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
mitochondrial fission during apoptosis, mitochondrial fragmentation involved in apoptosis
Definition
The change in the morphology of the mitochondria in an apoptotic cell from a highly branched network to a fragmented vesicular form. Source: GOC:rk, PMID:12867994, GOC:mtg_apoptosis
Comment
Although most of the processes described under 'apoptotic mitochondrial changes' take place during the signaling phase of apoptosis, 'mitochondrial fragmentation involved in apoptotic process' cannot be confidently placed there. It is still controversial whether this process is involved in the signaling phase of apoptosis or not, so it was placed under the more generic 'apoptotic mitochondrial changes' parent rather than linked to the signaling or the execution phase until further research clarifies the matter.
