Cohesin: A multi-purpose chromatin glue

Laura A. Díaz-Martínez, Hongtao Yu

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


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.
