Function Histone H3-like nucleosomal protein that is specifically found in centromeric nucleosomes . Replaces conventional H3 in the nucleosome core of centromeric chromatin at the inner plate of the kinetochore . The presence of CENPA subtly modifies the nucleosome structure and the way DNA is wrapped around the nucleosome and gives rise to protruding DNA ends that are less well-ordered and rigid compared to nucleosomes containing histone H3 . May serve as an epigenetic mark that propagates centromere identity through replication and cell division . Required for recruitment and assembly of kinetochore proteins, and as a consequence required for progress through mitosis, chromosome segregation and cytokinesis .
Cellular Localization Nucleus Chromosome, centromere, kinetochore Chromosome, centromere. Localizes exclusively in the kinetochore domain of centromeres. Occupies a compact domain at the inner kinetochore plate stretching across 2 thirds of the length of the constriction but encompassing only one third of the constriction width and height . Phosphorylation at Ser-68 during early mitosis abolishes association with chromatin and centromeres and results in dispersed nuclear location .
