Summaries for PDS5A Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PDS5A Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene binds to the cohesin complex and associates with chromatin through most of the cell cycle. The encoded protein may play a role in regulating sister chromatid cohesion during mitosis. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]

GeneCards Summary for PDS5A Gene

PDS5A (PDS5 Cohesin Associated Factor A) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Mitotic Telophase/Cytokinesis and CDK-mediated phosphorylation and removal of Cdc6. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include binding. An important paralog of this gene is PDS5B.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PDS5A Gene

  • Probable regulator of sister chromatid cohesion in mitosis which may stabilize cohesin complex association with chromatin. May couple sister chromatid cohesion during mitosis to DNA replication. Cohesion ensures that chromosome partitioning is accurate in both meiotic and mitotic cells and plays an important role in DNA repair.
