We have assembled the historical light curves of the BL Lac Object 3FGL

J0449.4-4350 at optical and gamma-ray bands, the time spanning about 10 years,

analyzed the periodic variability of the light curves by using four different

methods (Lomb-Scargle periodogram, REDFIT38, Jurkevich and DACF). We detected a

marginally possible quasi-periodic oscillation (QPO) of ~450 days. Assuming it

originates from the helical motion jet in a supermassive binary black hole

(SMBBH) system undergoing major merger, we estimate the primary black hole mass

M~7.7*10^{9} M_sun. To explore the origin of the gamma-ray, we investigated the

optical-gamma-ray correlations using discrete correlation function (DCF)

method, and found that the correlation between the two bands is very

significant. This strong correlation tends to imply lepton self-synchro-Compton

(LSSC) model to produce the gamma-ray.
