The Drosophila melanogaster condensin subunit Cap-G interacts with the centromere-specific histone H3 variant CID


The centromere-specific histone H3 variant CENP-A plays a crucial role in kinetochore specification and assembly. We chose a genetic approach to identify interactors of the Drosophila CENP-A homolog CID. Overexpression of cid in the proliferating eye imaginal disk results in a rough eye phenotype, which is dependent on the ability of the overexpressed… (More)
