Rad21 (631 aa, 71 kDa) is a cleavable component of cohesin complex, involved in chromosome cohesion during cell cycle, in DNA repair, and in apoptosis. The cohesin complex is required for the cohesion of sister chromatids after DNA replication. The cohesin complex apparently forms a large proteinaceous ring within which sister chromatids can be trapped. At metaphase-anaphase transition, this protein is cleaved by separase/ESPL1 and dissociates from chromatin, allowing sister chromatids to segregate.

Fig. 2 Immunofluorescence staining of Rad21.
Specific immunostaining is confirmed by the disappearance of stained Rad21 in the cells transfected with hRad21-specific RNAi (right-bottom figure). The cells are extracted in a buffer containing 0.5%Triton X-100 on ice before paraformaldehyde fixation.
