Product Introduction:
Product Description: Recombinant Prelamin-A is a 74kDa precursor of the nuclear lamin A protein. Prelamin-A is a structural component of the nuclear lamina and it is encoded by lamin A/C gene (LMNA). Due to the presence of a CAAX box sequence at carboxyl terminus, Prelamin-A in vivo goes through a serial of post-translational modifications, resulting in the farnesylation of the cysteine thiol, removal of the AAX tripeptide, carboxyl-methylation of the cysteinyl carboxy group and proteolysis of 18 C-terminal amino acids residues that lead to mature lamin A. Diverse mutations in the lamin A/C gene are associated with different deseases that are collectively called laminophaties, including Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy, familial partial lipodystrophy, limb girdle muscular dystrophy, dilated cardiomyopathy, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, and Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome.
