A Disease of Farnesylation? HGPS is a rare frequency 1 in 4 millionfatal, premature aging disorder . Lamin A plays a critical role in nuclear envelope integrity, chromosome organization, DNA replication, and gene transcription . Lamin A undergoes a complex series of posttranslational processing steps involving a farnesylated intermediate and subsequent proteolytic removal of the farnesylated carboxy-terminus.

Ran in the Spindle Checkpoint:Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by short stature, low body weight, early loss of hair, lipodystrophy, scleroderma, decreased joint mobility, osteolysis, and facial features that resemble aged persons.
Essay about Progeria: Senescence and Nuclear Structure Abnormalities Progeria Progeria is a genetic mutation which causes premature aging in young children. Children born with Progeria appear normal at birth, but 12 months after they begin to show signs and symptoms of aging.
Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome (HGPS) is a lethal congenital disorder, characterised (Figure 1).
Abnormal and delayed dentition is also common, and thin and often tight skin results from significant loss of subcutaneous fat [7, 10] (Figure 1).

For example, oncogene activation triggers cell senescence as a. cellular senescence, and stem-cell differentiation. These processes, although distinct, are all intercon- several of the nuclear abnormalities encountered in HGPS are relevant to all individuals.
