Cohesin

A multi-purpose chromatin glue

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

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.
