Condensin-2 complex subunit G2 (IPR024741)

Short name: Condensin2_G2

Family relationships



Subunit G2 is a non-SMC subunit of condensin II, which is involved in maintenance of the structural integrity of chromosomes. Condensin II is made up of SMC (structural maintenance of chromosomes) and non-SMC subunits. The non-SMC subunits bind to the catalytic ends of the SMC subunit dimer. The condensin holocomplex is able to introduce superhelical tension into DNA in an ATP hydrolysis- dependent manner, resulting in the formation of positive supercoils in the presence of topoisomerase I and of positive knots in the presence of topoisomerase II [PMID: 14532007].
