No human diseases have been associated with mutations in LAMA1, LAMA5, and LAMC1 (encodes laminin [gamma]1) to date, although lama1, lama5, lamb1, and lamc1 null mice are embryonic lethal [24, 45, 46], while a hypomorphic allele of lamal results in retinal defects in mice [47], point mutations in LAMB1 result in lissencephaly-5 in humans [ 48], and mutations of LAMB2 result in Pierson syndrome [49], which causes severe nephrosis and ocular abnormalities including lens malformations and cataracts demonstrating the critical role that these laminins play in development.
