Pharmacological inhibition of c-Jun N-terminal kinase signaling prevents cardiomyopathy caused by mutation in LMNA gene.


Mutations in LMNA, which encodes A-type nuclear lamins, cause disorders of striated muscle that have as a common feature dilated cardiomyopathy. We have demonstrated an abnormal activation of both the extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) and the c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) branches of the mitogen-activated protein kinase signaling cascade in hearts… (More)
