Summaries for EMD Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for EMD Gene

  • Emerin is a serine-rich nuclear membrane protein and a member of the nuclear lamina-associated protein family. It mediates membrane anchorage to the cytoskeleton. Dreifuss-Emery muscular dystrophy is an X-linked inherited degenerative myopathy resulting from mutation in the emerin gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for EMD Gene

EMD (Emerin) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with EMD include emery-dreifuss muscular dystrophy 1, x-linked and emery-dreifuss muscular dystrophy, x-linked. Among its related pathways are Regulation of Glucokinase by Glucokinase Regulatory Protein and Mitotic Prophase. GO annotations related to this gene include actin binding and beta-tubulin binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for EMD Gene

  • Stabilizes and promotes the formation of a nuclear actin cortical network. Stimulates actin polymerization in vitro by binding and stabilizing the pointed end of growing filaments. Inhibits beta-catenin activity by preventing its accumulation in the nucleus. Acts by influencing the nuclear accumulation of beta-catenin through a CRM1-dependent export pathway. Links centrosomes to the nuclear envelope via a microtubule association. EMD and BAF are cooperative cofactors of HIV-1 infection. Association of EMD with the viral DNA requires the presence of BAF and viral integrase. The association of viral DNA with chromatin requires the presence of BAF and EMD. Required for proper localization of non-farnesylated prelamin-A/C.

Subcellular locations from UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for EMD Gene

Nucleus inner membrane; Single-pass membrane protein; Nucleoplasmic side. Nucleus outer membrane. Note=Colocalized with BANF1 at the central region of the assembling nuclear rim, near spindle-attachment sites. The accumulation of different intermediates of prelamin-A/C (non-farnesylated or carboxymethylated farnesylated prelamin-A/C) in fibroblasts modify its localization in the nucleus.
