Dynamin-related protein 1 (Drp1) is a member of the dynamin family of large GTPase, which cycles between the cytosol and the mitochondrial outer membrane, and mediates mitochondrial fission. Using microarray analysis of gene expression in the livers of wild-type and Drp1 knockout mice, we have previously identified that endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress marker genes are significantly increased by the absence of Drp1 . Here, we provide methodological and analytical details of the microarray data, which have been deposited in the Gene Expression Omnibus as data set GSE64222. We have performed further gene ontology analysis of the data and found the differential expression of a subset of genes that are involved in the immune response in the livers of Drp1 knockout mice versus wild-type controls.
