  • Target

    • RelevanceStructural Maintenance of Chromosomes (SMC) family proteins play critical roles in various nuclear events that require structural changes of chromosomes, including mitotic chromosome organization, DNA recombination and repair and global transcriptional repression. The chromosome proteins are conserved in eukaryotes lead to mitotic chromosome segregation defects, suggesting a critical function of SMC family proteins in mitotic chromosome dynamics.
    • Cellular localizationNucleus. Chromosome. Chromosome; telomere. Note: Associates with chromatin. Localizes to PML nuclear bodies in ALT cell lines.
