Summary
The protein encoded by this gene is part of the nuclear lamina, a two-dimensional matrix of proteins located next to the inner nuclear membrane. The lamin family of proteins make up the matrix and are highly conserved in evolution. During mitosis, the lamina matrix is reversibly disassembled as the lamin proteins are phosphorylated. Lamin proteins are thought to be involved in nuclear stability, chromatin structure and gene expression. Vertebrate lamins consist of two types, A and B. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. Mutations in this gene lead to several diseases: Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy, familial partial lipodystrophy, limb girdle muscular dystrophy, dilated cardiomyopathy, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, and Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome.

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.

    See identical proteins and their annotated locations for NP_001269555.1

    Status: REVIEWED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (7) uses an alternate 3' exon structure and thus differs in the 3' coding region and 3' UTR, compared to variant 1. This results in a shorter isoform (A-delta50, also known as progerin) with a distinct C-terminus when compared to isoform prelamin A. Although this isoform has been linked to Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome, it is also found in unaffected individuals and thought to be linked to cellular terminal differentiation and physiological aging (see PubMed IDs: 12702809, 16645051, and 18060063).
