Term Information [More information on condensed chromosome, centromeric region]

Accession
GO:0000779
Name
condensed chromosome, centromeric region
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
condensed chromosome, centric region, condensed chromosome, centromere, condensed chromosome, pericentric region
Definition
The region of a condensed chromosome that includes the centromere and associated proteins, including the kinetochore. In monocentric chromosomes, this region corresponds to a single area of the chromosome, whereas in holocentric chromosomes, it is evenly distributed along the chromosome. Source: GOC:kmv, GOC:elh
Comment
Note that this term can be used in place of the obsolete cellular component term 'centromere ; GO:0005698'. Use with caution because this term refers to a specific region of the chromosome and not a protein complex.
