Nucleoskeleton, analogous to the cytoskeleton in the cytoplasm, is crucial for maintaining the shape of interphase nucleus.
And lamins are known for their role in maintaining nuclear integrity, being an intergral part of nucleoskeleton and NE [19,7].
Lamins are playing a crucial role in the assembly of nucleoskeleton and NE and as regulators of PCD.
The "mechanical stress hypothesis" model suggests that the lamins and their associated proteins form a filamentous nucleoskeleton that supports the nuclear envelope (NE).
