Go Annotations as Summary Text (Tabular View) (GO Graph)

GO curators for mouse genes have assigned the following annotations to the gene product of Lmna. (This text reflects annotations as of Tuesday, May 26, 2015.)
Summary from NCBI RefSeq

This gene encodes a protein that is a member of the lamin family. Nuclear lamins, intermediate filament-like proteins, are the major components of the nuclear lamina, a protein meshwork associated with the inner nuclear membrane. This meshwork is thought to maintain the integrity of the nuclear envelope, participate in chromatin organization, and regulate gene transcription. Vertebrate lamins consist of two types, A and B. This protein is an A-type and is proposed to be developmentally regulated. In mouse deficiency of this gene is associated with muscular dystrophy. Mouse lines with different mutations in this gene serve as pathophysiological models for several human laminopathies. In humans, 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. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants that encode different protein isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, May 2013]
