Chromosome condensation is a hallmark of mitosis in eukaryotes and is a prerequisite for faithful segregation of genetic material to daughter cells. Here we show that condensin, which is essential for assembling condensed chromosomes, helps to preclude the detrimental effects of gene transcription on mitotic condensation. ChIP-seq profiling reveals that the(More)
ChIP-seq, or chromatin immunoprecipitation combined with massively parallel DNA sequencing, is a powerful technique to investigate in vivo protein-DNA interactions on a genome-wide scale at high resolution. Here we describe a ChIP-seq protocol optimized for analysis of condensin I complex on human mitotic chromosomes. The protocol includes procedures of(More)
