Recent years have witnessed a dramatic expansion in our understanding of gene control. It is now widely appreciated that the spatial organization of the genome and the manner in which genes and regulatory elements are embedded therein has a critical role in facilitating the regulation of gene expression. The loop structures that underlie chromosome organization are anchored by cohesin complexes. Several components of the cohesin complex have multiple paralogs, leading to different levels of cohesin complex variants in cells. Here we review the current literature around cohesin variants and their known functions. We further discuss how variation in cohesin complex composition can result in functional differences that can impact genome organization and determine cell fate.
