PROTEIN
PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
STRUCTURE
motifs/domains
  • N-terminal 300 amino acids crucial for efficient nuclear enveloppe localization of UNC84A, responsible for detergent-resistant association with the nuclear lamina and lamin A binding
  • conserved C-terminal SUN domain, 175 AA SUN domain, not required for efficient nuclear enveloppe localization, interacts with the mammalian ANC-1 homologs nesprins 1 and 2 via their conserved KASH domain
  • a UNC84 domain may be playing a role in the nuclear anchoring and/or migration
  • HOMOLOGY

  • nuclear and perinuclear (integral membrane protein located at the inner nuclear membrane)
  • SUN1 and LMNA colocalize at the Nuclear Envelope (NE)
  • SUN1 deleted for Its N-Terminal Lamin A-Interacting Domain Locates in the Golgi
  • inner nuclear membrane (INM)2 proteins playing a major role in nuclear-cytoplasmic connection by formation of a bridge across the nuclear envelope (NE), known as the LINC complex
  • basic FUNCTION
  • involved in acetylation of histones for de-compacting DNA at the end of mitosis
  • connects the nucleoplasm with the cytoskeleton
  • SYNE2, and SUN1, SUN2 mediate nuclear migration of the photoreceptor cells through bridging microtubules with molecular motors to the nuclei
  • SYNE2 and SUN1 are involved in an early retinal developmental stage and the loss of function of these proteins eventually leads to an increase in cell death linked to apoptosis
  • nuclear envelope protein involved in nuclear migration, meiotic telomere tethering, and antiviral responses (
  • major role of SUN1 and SUN2 in the nucleo-cytoskeleton interactions and in regulation of nuclear positioning in differentiating cells
  • SUN1 and SUN2 may play a redundant role in DNA damage response (DDR)
  • SUN1 and SUN2 could affect DDR by localizing certain nuclear factors to the nuclear enveloppe or by mediating communication between nuclear and cytoplasmic events

    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS
    PATHWAY
    metabolism
    signaling
    a component
  • homodimers and heterodimers with SUN1
  • part of the LINC complex with the nesprin and SUN proteins
  • SYNE2 forms complexes with either SUN1 or SUN2 at the nuclear envelope to connect the nucleus with dynein/dynactin and kinesin molecular motors during the nuclear migrations in the retina
  • INTERACTION
    DNA
    RNA
    small molecule
    protein
  • TSNAX
  • interacting with UNC84B to form a physical interaction between the nuclear envelope and the centrosome
  • lamin A-binding protein
  • interact with lamin A (a subset of lamin A mutations, associated with Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy and Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome, disrupt lamin A interaction with UNC84B and SUN1)
  • interacts with nuclear lamin A and cytoplasmic nesprins to provide a physical connection between the nuclear lamina and the cytoskeleton
  • emerin and short SYNE2 isoforms are novel binding partners of both SUN1, UNC84B
  • POM121 and SUN1 interact transiently to promote early steps of interphase Nuclear pore complexes assembly
  • CCDC155 possesses hitherto unknown KASH-related sequences that directly interacted with SUN1 and mediated telomere localization

    ANIMAL & CELL MODELS
  • Syne-2-/- and Sun1-/- mice exhibit excessive apoptosis in the retina
  • premature death of progeric and dystrophic mice is ameliorated by removal of Sun1
