What are lamins?

Some articles on lamins, lamin:

Intermediate Filament - Types - Type V - Nuclear Lamins
... Lamins Lamins are fibrous proteins having structural function in the cell nucleus ... In metazoan cells, there are A and B type lamins, which differ in their length and pI ... B-type lamins are present in every cell ...
Laminopathy - Molecular Action
... Lamins are intermediate filament proteins that form the nuclear lamina scaffold underneath the nuclear envelope in animal cells ... interaction with inner nuclear membrane proteins such as lamin B receptor and emerin ... adaptation to mobility in animals as sessile organisms such as plants or fungi do not have lamins and the symptoms of many laminopathies include muscle defects ...
Lamin - A, B, and C Types
... In animal cells, there are A- and B-type lamins, which differ in their length and pI ... B-type lamins are present in every cell ... B type lamins, B1 and B2, are expressed from the LMNB1 and LMNB2 genes on 5q23 and 19q13, respectively ...
Inner Nuclear Membrane Proteins and Disease - Laminopathies
... Laminopathy The wide array of diseases involving lamins and their associated inner nuclear membrane proteins are collectively called laminopathies ... As mutations in lamins cause the autosomal dominant form of Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy, and lamins and emerin are known to interact, it has been hypothesised that muscle disease is caused by a structural ... Mutations in the gene LBR, encoding lamin B receptor, causes Pelger-Hüet anomaly ...
LMNA - Function
... The lamin family of proteins make up the matrix and are highly conserved in evolution ... 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 ...
