Nuclear lamina in an eukaryotic cell is primarily composed of the lamins A, B and C. The A type lamins are found only in differentiated cell types while the B type lamins are present both in differentiated and undifferentiated cells. Lamin B interacts with the inner nuclear membrane, In recent years there have been extensive studies on the relationship between the dynamic state of lamin B and the nuclear envelope integrity with respect to the fate of a particular cell, In this article, we have analysed the recent developments and have considered the sequence of events that might be contributing to the fate of a cell either to undergo normal cell division or uncontrolled cellular proliferation or apoptosis.
