Brief description:  LMN-1 encodes the sole C. elegans nuclear lamin; LMN-1 protein is essential for the nuclear envelope localization of emerin (EMR-1) protein during early development. Disruption of the orthologous human gene LMNA, which produces the nuclear scaffolding protein lamin A,leads to cellular instability which causes premature aging seen in progeria.
