Nuclear envelope defects associated with LMNA mutations cause dilated cardiomyopathy and Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy.


Nuclear lamin A and C alleles that are linked to three distinct human diseases have been expressed both in HeLa cells and in fibroblasts derived from Lmna null mice. Point mutations that cause dilated cardiomyopathy (L85R and N195K) and autosomal dominant Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy (L530P) modify the assembly properties of lamins A and C and cause… (More)
