Lamins are nucleoskeletal proteins of mammalian cells that stabilize the structure and maintain the rigidity of the nucleus . These type V intermediate filament proteins which are predominantly of A and B types provide necessary tensile strength to the nucleus . Single amino acid missense mutations occurring all over the lamin A protein form a cluster of human diseases termed as laminopathies, a few of which principally affect the muscle and cardiac tissues responsible for load bearing functionalities of the body . One such mutation is lamin A350P which causes dilated cardiomyopathy in patients . It is likely that a change from alanine to proline in the α-helical 2B rod domain of the protein might severely disrupt the propensity of the filaments to polymerise into functional higher order structures required to form a fully functional lamina with its characteristic elasticity . In this study, we validate for the very first time, the application of active microrheology employing oscillating optical tweezers to investigate any alterations in the visco-elastic parameters of the mutant protein meshwork in vitro, which might translate into possible changes in nuclear plasticity . We confirm our findings from this robust yet fast method by imaging both the wild type and mutant lamins using a super resolution microscope, and observe changes in the mesh size which explain our measured changes in the viscoelastic parameters of the lamins . This method could naturally be extended to conduct microrheological measurements on any intermediate filament protein or any protein endowed with elastic behavior, with minor schematic modifications, thus bearing significant implications in laminopathies and other diseases which are associated with changes in structural rigidity of any cellular organelle . Significance Lamin A mutations produce an array of diseases termed as laminopathies which are primarily characterized by alteration of elastic behavior of the nucleus which in turn leads to defects in mechanotransduction . This is the first report in the lamin arena which shows a fast, accurate and direct quantification of elastic moduli of lamin A using optical tweezers-based microrheology . This has very significant implications and can be registered to be a robust and universal method that could also be suitably used for probing changes in elastic properties of any proteins or surfactants in a disease scenario such as SARS-Cov2 (Covid-19), which is pandemic at this time.
