Functions of cohesin in DNA damage response during the cell cycle. The function of cohesin in promoting DSB repair through sister-chromatid homologous recombination (HR) has been established in multiple organisms ranging from yeast to man. Most of the other proposed functions are only demonstrated in specific organisms, and their evolutionary conservation needs to be further tested.
