Abstract

Similarities exist among components of simple and complex centromeres that may not have been expected on the basis of wide variation in size and sequence organization of centromeric DNAs among eukaryotes. Support is growing in systems from fungi to Drosophila for a model of centromere assembly and activation that is dependent on a particular underlying chromatin structure but not necessarily on a specific DNA sequence.
