These SNPs located in or near genes ligand dependent nuclear receptor corepressor like, non-SMC condensin I complex subunit G (NCAPG), leucine aminopeptidase 3, LIM domain binding 2, quinoid dihydropteridine reductase, prominin 1, and transmembrane anterior posterior transformation 1.
SMC1/3 form the core of the cohesin complex which mediates sister chromatid cohesion; SMC2/4 are present in the condensin complex that acts in chromosome assembly and segregation.
Condensin II complex is another important factor that highlights the role of pRB in mitotic chromosome dynamics and stability (Figure 3).
In fact, inactive rDNA units were associated with condensin, a protein complex that condenses rDNA and connects sister-chromatids for repair by homologous recombination (Fig.

As the chromosomes condense, REC8 is cleaved on the chromosome arms and the cohesin complex is replaced by the condensin complex.
Components of the condensin complex (eg, BRRN1, CNAP1, NCAPD3) and members of the kinesin family (eg, KIF14, KIF23, KIFC1) were upregulated.
The "haggard faces" and the "dwarfed child" are not related to the abstraction injustice by virtue of sharing one like quality; instead, they are entirely congruent with injustice, condensin g it into a single, stark image.
On chromosome 6 there are several protein coding sequences in near vicinity of the locus rs109210955, including leucine aminopeptidase (LAP3), mediator of RNA polymerase II transcription subunit 28 (MED28), family with sequence similarity 184 member B (FAM184B), DDB1 and CUL4 associated factor 16 (DCAF16), non-SMC condensin I complex subunit G (NCAPG), ligand-dependent nuclear receptor corepressor-like protein (LCORL).
In early prophase, the CPC is located on chromosomal condensing arms where it seems to displace the heterochromatin protein-1 from DNA and to recruit condensin proteins (Figure 3) 36, 37].
Nonsynonymous SNP on BTA 6 within non-SMC condensin I complex subunit G identified to be significantly associated with carcass weight in a large Japanese black population [10].
