Abstract

Eukaryotic chromosomes are organized into topological domains, but how these are established and maintained is poorly understood. Writing in Nature, Crane et al. (2015) show that a specialized condensin complex enforces the domain boundaries along the C. elegans X chromosome to equalize transcription from the X between males and hermaphrodites.
