Abstract: Prelamin A, a CaaX-protein is a key structural protein of the inner nuclear lamina, a meshwork lining the inner nuclear envelope. Farnesylated prelamin A is cleaved just upstream of the farnesylcysteine residue to produce mature lamin A. We generated Zmpste24 knockout mice and documented a striking accumulation of farnesylated and methylated prelamin A in cells. Zmpste24 knockout cells exhibit premature senescence and misshapen cell nuclei. Zmpste24 knockout mice show slow growth, hair loss,... more
