PhysiologyFarnesylated-protein converting enzyme 1 is responsible for cleavage of prelamin A to lamin A in human cells (Gruber et al., 2005).
KnockoutA mouse deficient in this gene product shows multiple spontaneous bone fractures (Bergo et al., 2002) and accellerated aging (Varela et al.2005). Human mutations in the enzyme may be associated with mandibuloacral dysplasia (Agarwal et al., 2003) and also appear to be a cause of the autosomal recessive syndrome restrictive dermopathy (Navarro et al., 2005). Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS) is caused by a mutant prelamin A that cannot be processed to lamin A.
