Lamins are components of nucleus, which not only influence organization and integrity of nuclear envelope, but are also essential for the maintenance and processing of genetic material. Therefore, disturbance of their functioning as a result of mutations in various regions of the protein molecule can have serious consequences for the number and activity of cells in various tissues. Since identifying lamin defects as important factors in a vast range of diseases, research aimed at elucidation of tissue-specific mechanisms in the pathophysiology of particular syndroms has been in progress. Various hypotheses have been proposed; their verification requires knowledge of all the functions and interactions involving lamins and their binding partners.
