Research shows how protective barrier shields centromeres from other parts of chromosome during cell division

Fresh insights into the structures that contain our genetic material could explain how the body’s cells stay healthy. A protective barrier formed inside each of our chromosomes helps to prevent errors occurring when cells divide, researchers say. The study sheds light on the precise interplay between key factors inside chromosomes that leads to the formation …
