Abstract

We report the identification of a family of sequences located by in situ hybridisation to the centromeres of all the Triticeae chromosomes studied, including the supernumerary and midget chromosomes, the centromeres of all maize chromosomes and the heterochromatic regions of rice chromosomes. This family of sequences (CCS1), together with the cereal genome alignments, will allow the evolution of the cereal centromeres and their sites to be studied. The family of sequences also shows homology to the CENP-B box. The centromeres of the cereal species and the proteins that interact with them can now be characterised.
