Holocentric Chromosomes Probably Do Not Prevent Centromere Drive in CyperaceaeM. Kratka, J. Smerda, K. Lojdova, P. Bures and F. Zedek, Frontiers in Plant Science, 12:9. 2021.
In response to these selfish centromeres, the histone protein CenH3, which recruits kinetochore components, adaptively evolves to restore chromosomal parity and counter the detrimental effects of centromere drive. Holocentric chromosomes, whose kinetochores are assembled along ...
