Centromere protein A (CENP-A) is a 17-19kD centromere-specific histone variant that is 62% identical to the carboxy-terminal domain of histone H3. In the presence of DNA CENP-A forms an octameric complex with histones H4, H2A, and H2B. CENP-A defines active centromere regions by forming centromere-specific nucleosomes on which kinetochores are assembled. CENP-An is specifically located to the inner plate of the kinetochore and it is essential for kinetochore targeting of CENP-C and other kinetochore components. CENP-An is required for nucleosomal packaging of centromeric DNA at interphase.
Immunogen: Synthetic peptide corresponding to a portion of human CENP-A. In general, we may offer more than one antibody to a given target to enable options for the researcher. Available antibodies recognizing CENPA are readily searchable from our website. Different antibodies against the same target such as CENPA may be optimized or tested for different applications and species. This enables researchers to select the option that may be best for their model system, to screen more than antibody to determine which one may be best for their model system, as well as to use more than one antibody to follow up on and validate their results. The following patways have been known to be associated with this gene. Adenocarcinoma, Breast Neoplasms, Carcinoma, Cell Transformation, Neoplastic, Hypertension, Liver Cirrhosis, Liver Diseases, Lung Neoplasms, Neoplasms, Pancreatic Neoplasms are some of the diseases may be linked to CENP-A (Centromere Protein A). CENPA also interacts with the following gene(s): AURKB, BIRC5, CENPE, CENPF, HJURP, NUF2. Blood, Connective Tissue, Embryonic Tissue, Liver, Lung, Lymph, Lymph Node tissues are correlated with this protein.
