NIPBL a chromatin protein involved in sister chromatid cohesion. Interacts directly with CBX5 via the PxVxL motif, which is required for interaction with chromoshadow domains. Defects in NIPBL are the cause of Cornelia de Lange syndrome (CDL). CDL is a dominantly inherited multisystem developmental disorder. Three alternatively spliced isoforms have been reported.
