Mitochondria constantly undergo fusion and fission events. A proper balance of fusion and fission is essential in healthy cells, as disrupting this balance is associated with several neurodegenerative diseases. Mitochondrial fission has also been shown to play an important role during apoptosis. Hence, the machineries that control mitochondrial morphology have both nonapoptotic and apoptotic functions. Seminal work in yeast has identified some of the key components of these machineries. However, the list is certainly not complete and new factors that are specific to metazoans are being identified every year. In this review, we describe methodologies to test whether a particular candidate gene plays a role in the control of mitochondrial morphology in healthy cells and apoptotic cells using Caenorhabditis elegans.
