LEMD2 Antibody: The LEM (lamina-associated polypeptide-emerin-MAN1) domain is a motif shared by a group of lamin-interacting proteins of the inner nuclear membrane (INM) and nucleoplasm. One such protein, LEMD2 (LEM domain-containing protein 2), is a lamina-associated protein in the INM involved in nuclear structure organization, containing an N-terminal LEM motif, two transmembrane domains, and a MAN1-Src1p C-terminal (MSC) domain. LEMD2 is a truncated paralog of MAN1, lacking the MAN1-specific C-terminal RNA-recognition motif, but like MAN1 is required for myogenic differentiation. Mutations in LEMD2 are thought be among the possible causes of muscle disease.
