Short name: CND3

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships



Condensin complex subunit 3 (also known as NCAPG or YCG1) is a regulatory subunit of the condensin complex, a complex required for conversion of interphase chromatin into mitotic-like condense chromosomes. The condensin complex probably introduces positive supercoils into relaxed DNA in the presence of type I topoisomerases and converts nicked DNA into positive knotted forms in the presence of type II topoisomerase [PMID: 10428035, PMID: 11136719, PMID: 10485849].
