Replication stress underlies many genomic alterations in cancer cells. In this issue of Developmental Cell, Benedict et al. show that WAPL-dependent cohesin removal is needed to restart DNA synthesis at stalled forks and promote survival following replication stress, uncovering an unexpected link between stress and sister chromatid cohesion loss.
