Centromere: Structure and Evolution by Tanya Panchenko, Ben E. Black (auth.), Durdica Ugarkovic

By Tanya Panchenko, Ben E. Black (auth.), Durdica Ugarkovic (eds.)

The centromere is a chromosomal locus that regulates the correct pairing and segregation of the chromosomes in the course of telephone department. regardless of their conserved, crucial functionality, centromeres are characterised via the quick evolution of either centromeric DNA and proteins.

This ebook provides present perspectives on centromere constitution and identification. It bargains with the epigenetic thought of centromere institution and upkeep in addition to with the function of DNA and centromeric transcripts in centromere formation and serve as. specific emphasis is put on centromere evolution: varied evolutionary types are mentioned intimately and the most recent study at the evolution of recent centromeres and neocentromeres is presented.
