Term Detail
GO term:chromosome, centromeric region
Synonym: centromere
Synonym: centromere complex
Synonym: chromosome, centric region
Synonym: chromosome, pericentric region
GO id:GO:0000775
Definition:The region of a chromosome that includes the centromeric DNA and associated proteins. In monocentric chromosomes, this region corresponds to a single area of the chromosome, whereas in holocentric chromosomes, it is evenly distributed along the chromosome.
CommentsNote that this term can be used in place of the obsolete cellular component term 'centromere ; GO:0005698'.
Number of paths to term: 17
