Related to TMPO: tempo
TMPOA gene on chromosome 12q22 that encodes thymopoietin, which may help direct nuclear lamina assembly and maintain the nuclear envelope’s structural organisation. Thymopoietin may act as a receptor for attachment of lamin filaments to the inner nuclear membrane.
Defects in TMPO cause cardiomyopathy dilated type 1.
