Summaries for LMNB1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for LMNB1 Gene

  • This gene encodes one of the two B-type lamin proteins and is a component of the nuclear lamina. A duplication of this gene is associated with autosomal dominant adult-onset leukodystrophy (ADLD). Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2015]

GeneCards Summary for LMNB1 Gene

LMNB1 (Lamin B1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with LMNB1 include Leukodystrophy, Demyelinating, Adult-Onset, Autosomal Dominant and Leukodystrophy. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle, Mitotic and Apoptosis and survival Caspase cascade. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include structural molecule activity and phospholipase binding. An important paralog of this gene is LMNB2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for LMNB1 Gene

  • Lamins are components of the nuclear lamina, a fibrous layer on the nucleoplasmic side of the inner nuclear membrane, which is thought to provide a framework for the nuclear envelope and may also interact with chromatin.

  • Leukodystrophy, demyelinating, autosomal dominant, adult-onset (ADLD) [MIM:169500]: A slowly progressive and fatal demyelinating leukodystrophy, presenting in the fourth or fifth decade of life. Clinically characterized by early autonomic abnormalities, pyramidal and cerebellar dysfunction, and symmetric demyelination of the CNS. It differs from multiple sclerosis and other demyelinating disorders in that neuropathology shows preservation of oligodendroglia in the presence of subtotal demyelination and lack of astrogliosis. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:16951681}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
