Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome: This syndrome is caused by mutations in the LMNA gene that result in the production of an abnormal version of the lamin A protein. The altered protein makes the nuclear envelope unstable and progressively damages the nucleus, making cells more likely to die prematurely. The disease causes premature aging and severe hardening of the arteries beginning in childhood. This condition greatly increases the chances having a heart attack or stroke at a young…
