    ..These datasets not only highlight genes that may be involved in lens aging but also indicate a lack of H3K4me3/H3K27me3 bivalency on hematopoietic genes in HSCs. ..
  5. Guo Y, Zheng Y. Lamins position the nuclear pores and centrosomes by modulating dynein. Mol Biol Cell. 2015;26:3379-89 pubmed publisher
    ..Therefore lamins regulate microtubule-based motor forces in vivo to ensure proper NPC distribution in interphase and centrosome separation in the mitotic prophase. ..
