Furthermore, it is probably the retention of the farnesyl group by prelamin A that underlies most of the pathologies, as mice engineered to solely express lamin A, so bypassing prelamin A processing, are seemingly normal and have a longer lifespan. , 2010). In HGPS, the progerin variant remains farnesylated, as the 50-amino acid deletion removes the second ZMSTE24 endoproteolytic site used to cleave the farnesylated and methylated cysteine.
