..., a mutant lamin A protein derived from a splicing variant of the lamin A/C gene ( LMNA ). Progerin causes chromatin perturbations which result in the formation of DSBs (double-strand breaks) and abnormal DDR (DNA-damage response). In the present article, we review recent findings which resolve some...

...Gemma S. Beard; Joanna M. Bridger; Ian R. Kill; David R.P. Tree The laminopathy Hutchinson–Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS) is caused by the mutant lamin A protein progerin and leads to premature aging of affected children. Despite numerous cell biological and biochemical insights into the basis...
