Abstract

Cohesin, a multisubunit protein complex conserved from yeast to humans, plays a major role in sister chromatid cohesion. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, cohesins bind to chromatin before or during DNA replication and remain bound until the metaphase–anaphase transition. In vertebrate cells, however, most cohesins dissociate from chromatin in early mitosis, long before the onset of anaphase. This is clearly shown in the picture above where two Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells, one in interphase (top) and one in metaphase (bottom), are stained with a DNA-binding dye (red) and an antibody against XSA1 (green), a recently identified subunit of vertebrate cohesin complexes
