This gene is composed of 6 exons and codes for protein that is a member of the nuclear lamina-associated family. This protein is found along the nuclear rim of many cell types. The emerin protein is involved with numerous interactions ranging from regulating the activity of certain genes, controlling cell division and maintaining the integrity of the nucleus. Mutations in this gene are associated with Atrial fibrillation and conduction cardiomyopathy.
