26878239 The authors found that the nucleosome shape change directed by CENP-A is dominated by lateral passing of two DNA gyres (gyre sliding).
26527398 CENP-C and CENP-I are key factors connecting kinetochore to CENP-A assembly.
25954010 CENP-C depletion leads to rapid removal of CENP-A from centromeres, indicating their collaboration in maintaining centromere identity.
25942623 CENP-B directly binds both CENP-A's amino-terminal tail and CENP-C, a key nucleator of kinetochore assembly
25843710 We used a synthetic system to dissect how CenH3(CENP-A) contributes to the accumulation of CENP-C and CENP-T, two key components that are necessary for the formation of functional kinetochores
25795299 the CRL4 complex containing RBBP7 (CRL4(RBBP7)) might regulate mitosis by promoting ubiquitin-dependent loading of newly synthesized CENP-A during the G1 phase of the cell cycle.
25786215 The DNA ends of the CENP-A nucleosome are more flexible than those of the H3 nucleosome.
25713413 results indicate that the regions of CENP-A required for early events in centromere establishment differ from those that are required for maintaining centromere identity.
25408271 The CENP-A/histone H3.3 nucleosome forms an unexpectedly stable structure and allows the binding of the essential centromeric protein, CENP-C, which is ectopically mislocalized in the chromosomes of CENP-A overexpressing tumor cells.
25117489 The study describes a novel function for human centromeric long non-coding RNAs in the recruitment of HJURP and CENP-A, implicating RNA-based chaperone targeting in histone variant assembly.
