Centromere inheritance in S. pombe and beyond
Dr L Subramanian
Applications accepted all year round
Accurate chromosome segregation relies on the stable inheritance of functional centromeres through generations. A key determinant of centromere function is the histone H3 variant CENP-A (Centromere Protein A), that epigenetically marks and specifies active centromeres.
