Cohesin-mediated sister chromatid cohesion is essential for chromosome segregation and post-replicative DNA repair. Growing evidence from human genetics and model organisms links cohesin to the formation of long-range chromosomal interactions and to the regulation of gene expression in association with CTCF , mediator, or tissue-specific transcription factors. We have taken genetic approaches to determine the impact of cohesin on developmentally regulated gene expression and the organization of chromatin in non-dividing mammalian cells. Since gene dosage reductions in the cohesin loading factor Nipbl are the leading cause of Cornelia de Lange syndrome, we have also investigated the transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation of Nipbl expression.
