Mechanisms of genome instability in Hutchinson-Gilford progeria

Abstract

Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS) is a devastating premature aging disorder. It arises from a single point mutation in the LMNA gene. This mutation stimulates an aberrant splicing event and produces progerin, an isoform of the lamin A protein. Accumulation of progerin disrupts numerous physiological pathways and induces defects in nuclear… (More)
