Is there a file within Linux which lists all mounted db files?

I am familiar with the my.cnf which tells MySql where the data dirs are. But is there a file which lists the names of the MySql files in use?

E.g. /etc/mysql/data/database1/database1.MYI

Typically MySQL databases are 'open' only long enough to run queries.  If there are no queries currently being run, there would be no open database files.

lsof is the tool that will list open resources by processes.
