From NCBI Gene:
This gene encodes a type 2 integral membrane protein that binds A- and B-type lamins. The encoded protein localizes to the inner nuclear membrane and may be involved in maintaining the attachment of the nuclear membrane to the nuclear lamina during cell division. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2016]
Required for nuclear membrane integrity. Induces TOR1A and TOR1B ATPase activity and is required for their location on the nuclear membrane. Binds to A- and B-type lamins. Possible role in membrane attachment and assembly of the nuclear lamina.

- Muscular dystrophy, limb-girdle, type 2y
Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy 2Y (LGMD2Y): An autosomal recessive form of limb-girdle muscular dystrophy, a degenerative myopathy characterized by slowly progressive wasting and weakness of the proximal muscles of arms and legs around the pelvic or shoulder girdles, elevated creatine kinase levels and dystrophic features on muscle biopsy. LGMD2Y is characterized by muscle weakness initially involving the proximal lower limbs, followed by distal upper and lower limb muscle weakness and atrophy. Other features include joint contractures, rigid spine, and restricted pulmonary function. Cardiac involvement has been observed in some patients. Disease onset is in the first or second decades of life. [MIM:617072]
