Nuclear lamins are intermediate filament-type proteins forming a fibrillar meshwork that underlies the inner nuclear membrane. We have previously reported the identification of the human lamin B2 gene that maps to the subtelomeric band p13.3 of chromosome 19 in close proximity of a human DNA replication origin. Here we report the identification within the human lamin B2 gene of a novel repeated element (variable number of tandem repeats: VNTR) that appears to have a very recent origin, being… CONTINUE READING
