Mouse anti Human SMC3 antibody recognizes SMC3, also known as BAM, HCAP, CDLS3, CSPG6 or BMH.

The SMC3 protein is a subunit of cohesin, a ubiquitously-expressed complex associated with sister chromatid cohesion, chromatin structure, gene expression, and DNA repair (Hill et al. 2016). Establishment of cohesion between replicated sister chromatids is important for ensuring their correct segregation during anaphase of the cell cycle. Acetylation of SMC3 during S phase is essential for the function of cohesin. Deacetylation of SMC3 during telophase is important for recycling cohesin so it can be reloaded during interphase (Dasgupta et al. 2016). Genes encoding subunits of cohesin are mutated in a range of cancers. Mutations in SMC3 have been found in chronic myelogenous leukemia and glioblastoma (Solomon et al. 2014). A post-translationally modified form of SMC3 is secreted as bamacan (Ghiselli et al. 2003), a basement membrane protein (Ghiselli and Iozzo 2000).
