|Precautions||WAPL Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||FOE, KIAA0261, WAPL|
|Function||Regulator of sister chromatid cohesion in mitosis which negatively regulates cohesin association with chromatin. Involved in both sister chromatid cohesion during interphase and sister- chromatid resolution during early stages of mitosis. Couples DNA replication to sister chromatid cohesion. Cohesion ensures that chromosome partitioning is accurate in both meiotic and mitotic cells and plays an important role in DNA repair.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 2: Nucleus.|
|Tissue Location||Isoform 1 is highly expressed in uterine cervix tumor. Isoform 2 is widely expressed with a high level in skeletal muscle and heart.|

WAPL (wings apart-like), also known as WAPAL or FOE, is a 1,190 amino acid protein that contains one WAPL domain and may play an important role in cell growth (1). It is expressed in an isoform dependent manner in heart, skeletal muscle (isoform 2) and uterine cervix tumor tissue (isoform 1) (1,2,4). WAPL is involved in sister-chromatid adhesion and promotes release of cohesin from chromosomes by directly interacting with its regulatory subunits (3,4). WAPL is a new regulator of the development and metastasis of cancerous tissue (4,5).
