Laminopathies are caused by mutations in components of the nuclear envelope (NE). While most NE components are widely expressed, laminopathies affect only a subset of tissues. However, the understanding of the molecular mechanisms that explain this phenomenon is still elusive. Here we have performed RNA-Seq analysis in adult C. elegans nematodes comparing gene expression in wild type and single and double mutants of two components of the NE, EMR-1 and LEM-2. Our data confirm that EMR-1 and LEM-2 facilitate gene repression and that both proteins control the expression of mainly muscle and neuronal genes. mRNA profiles of wild type, emr-1(gk119), lem-2(tm1582) and emr-1(RNAi) lem-2(tm1582) young adult worms were generated by deep sequencing, in triplicate for the wild type and duplicates for the other backgrounds, using Illumina GAIIx.
