Cohesin, in complex with WAPAL and PDS5 (PDS5A or PDS5B) binds decondensed chromatin in telophase (Kueng et al. 2006). This binding is facilitated by the NIPBL:MAU2 complex, also known as the 'cohesin loading complex'. NIPBL:MAU2 complex is associated with chromatin from telophase until prophase (Watrin et al. 2006) but seems to form a transient rather than stable complex with cohesin.
