  • Lamins- Links To Premature Aging

    Lamins are a family of type V intermediate filament proteins that are located primarily in the inner nuclear membrane. They polymerize to create the nuclear lamina. Like all intermediate filament proteins lamins contain a highly conserved α-helical coiled rod domain flanked by variable N-terminal... View Post

  • Understanding The Cytokeratin Family

    Cytokeratins are a complex family of proteins that are the key components of the cytoskeleton of epithelial cells, forming the intermediate filaments characteristic of that structure. There are more than 50 recognised members of the cytokeratin family in humans, although many are restricted to e... View Post
