Latest Cohesin Stories
Massive sequencing of cancer genomes brings to light new genes every day that could be involved in the process of tumour formation.
Researchers studying rare genetic disorders have uncovered insights into those diseases in biological structures that regulate chromosomes when cells divide.
Cohesin is a ring-shaped protein complex involved in the spatial organization of the genome and in mitotic chromosome structure.
University of Pennsylvania biologists studying human reproduction have identified what is likely the major contributing factor to the maternal age-associated increase in aneuploidy, the term for an abnormal number of chromosomes during reproductive cell division.
Proteins called cohesins ensure that newly copied chromosomes bind together, separate correctly during cell division, and are repaired efficiently after DNA damage.
-Knowledge May Improve Diagnosis for Children with Cornelia deLange Syndrome- PHILADELPHIA, May 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- An international team of scientists studying a rare genetic disease discovered that a bundle of proteins with the long-established function of keeping chromosomes together also plays an important role in regulating genes in humans.
