lam·in (lamґin) any of a group of intermediate filaments that enmesh to form the nuclear lamina. They are structurally similar to keratin filaments. In mammals, three have been described, A–C, with A and C encoded by the same region (LMNA gene) and having close sequence homology, but generated by alternative splicing. Mutations affecting LMNA have been linked to various disorders, including Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy, limb-girdle muscular dystrophy, dilated cardiomyopathy, familial partial lipodystophy, and progeria.
