The least-understood aspect of nuclear structure is how nucleoskeletal proteins interact with chromatin. However, several nucleoskeletal proteins, including lamin A, titin and barrier-to-autointegration factor (BAF) bind directly to chromatin via DNA or specific histones, and this may be important for genome organization and regulation. The nuclear envelope protein emerin associates directly with lamins and with nuclear membrane proteins, including nesprin 1 (nuclear envelope spectrin-repeat protein 1), nesprin 2, SUN (Sad1 and UNC-84) domain-containing 1 (SUN1) and SUN2.
