Characterization of unfolding mechanism of human lamin A Ig fold by single-molecule force spectroscopy-implications in EDMD.


A- and B-type lamins are intermediate filament proteins constituting the nuclear lamina underneath the nuclear envelope thereby conferring proper shape and mechanical rigidity to the nucleus. Lamin proteins are also shown to be related diversely to basic nuclear processes. More than 400 mutations in human lamin A protein alone have been reported to produce… (More)
