Human CENPA shares 71.6% amino acid (aa) sequence identity with mouse CENPA.
Reconstitution information: Add 0.2 mL of distilled water will yield a concentration of 500 µg/mL.
Centromeres are the differentiated chromosomal domains that specify the mitotic behavior of chromosomes. CENPA encodes a centromere protein which contains a histone H3 related histone fold domain that is required for targeting to the centromere. CENPA is proposed to be a component of a modified nucleosome or nucleosome-like structure in which it replaces 1 or both copies of conventional histone H3 in the (H3-H4)2 tetrameric core of the nucleosome particle.
