Gene: EMD (emerin) Homo sapiens
Symbol: EMD
Name: emerin
Description: Exhibits actin binding activity and beta-tubulin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of canonical Wnt signaling pathway; negative regulation of fibroblast proliferation; and positive regulation of protein export from nucleus. Localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum; nuclear membrane; and nucleoplasm. Colocalizes with the cortical endoplasmic reticulum and spindle pole centrosome. Implicated in Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy; X-linked Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy 1; and dilated cardiomyopathy.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: EDMD; emerin (Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy); LEM domain containing 5; LEMD5; STA
