Due to inclement weather, Bethyl will be closed Tuesday, January 16 and re-open Wednesday, January 17th at noon. Orders will not be processed until Bethyl re-opens. This is a developing weather situation and may continue to change. Thank you!
SA2 is a component of the multisubunit cohesin complex. Cohesin functions to hold sister chromatids together during meiosis and mitosis and ensure proper segregation of chromosomes. Cohesin must dissociate from sister chromatids during prophase and metaphase so that they can segregate to opposite poles of the cell during anaphase. As part of the cohesin complex, SA2 appears to play a role in cohesin dissociation required for sister chromatid separation. Interestingly, SA2 has been demonstrated to also exhibit transcriptional regulatory activity through an association with NF-kappaB.
