Nuclear Lamins form a network of intermediate-type filaments at the nucleoplasmic site of the nuclear membrane. Two main subtypes of nuclear lamins can be distinguished, i.e. A-type Lamins and B-type Lamins. The A-type Lamins comprise a set of three proteins arising from the same gene by alternative splicing, i.e. Lamin A, Lamin C and Lamin Adel 10, while the B-type Lamins include two proteins arising from two distinct genes, i.e. Lamin B1 and Lamin B2. Recent evidence has revealed that mutations in A-type Lamins give rise to a range of rare but dominant genetic disorders, including Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy, dilated cardiomyopathy with conduction-system disease and Dunnigan-type familial partial lipodystrophy. In addition, the expression of A-type Lamins coincides with cell differentiation and as A-type Lamins specifically interact with chromatin, a role in the regulation of differential gene expression has been suggested for A-type Lamins.
