Endoplasmic reticulum. Nucleus inner membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Note=Retained in the inner nuclear membrane through interaction with EMD and A- and B-lamins. The N- and C-termini are oriented towards the nucleoplasm. The majority of the hydrophilic domain resides in the endoplasmic reticulum lumen (By similarity).
Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia, familial, 5 (ARVD5) [MIM:604400]: A congenital heart disease characterized by infiltration of adipose and fibrous tissue into the right ventricle and loss of myocardial cells, resulting in ventricular and supraventricular arrhythmias. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy 7, autosomal dominant (EDMD7) [MIM:614302]: A form of Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy, a degenerative myopathy characterized by weakness and atrophy of muscle without involvement of the nervous system, early contractures of the elbows, Achilles tendons and spine, and cardiomyopathy associated with cardiac conduction defects. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
May have an important role in maintaining nuclear envelope structure by organizing protein complexes at the inner nuclear membrane. Required for retaining emerin at the inner nuclear membrane (By similarity).
