Cohesin: A multi-purpose chromatin glue

Laura A. Díaz-Martínez, Hongtao Yu

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Long thought to be the glue responsible for holding sister chromatids together, cohesin has been found to be stickier than previously thought. Recent discoveries point to cohesin having a role in transcription regulation by mediating long-distance intra-chromosomal interactions.
