Domain organization at the centromere and neocentromere

Dev Cell. 2001 Aug;1(2):165-77. doi: 10.1016/s1534-5807(01)00028-4.

Abstract

Recent data indicate that the eukaryotic centromere and pericentromeric regions are organized into definable functional and structural domains. Studies in different organisms point to a model of conserved pattern of organization for these domains.
