• mechanism
  • The mechanism by which specific regions of the chromosome are organized and segregated prior to division remains a mystery. (wiley.com)
  • We recently provided evidence from immunofluorescence and electron microscopy studies that merotelic kinetochore orientation is a major mechanism for lagging chromosomes during mitosis in PtK1 cells. (biologists.org)
  • The selected Xi becomes the target of a chromosome‐wide mechanism of transcriptional silencing, which constitutes an exciting paradigm for epigenetic regulations and confirms interest in the molecular dissection of the X‐inactivation centre ( Xic ), a locus on the X chromosome that contains the Xist gene and the elements involved in counting, choice and silencing.

  • found
  • The X chromosome was found to have four groups of genes physically arranged as four consecutive blocks, like the layers of rock in geological strata. (abc.net.au)
  • Kinetochores of lagging chromosomes in anaphase human cells were found to be devoid of the mitotic checkpoint phosphoepitopes recognized by the 3F3/2 antibody, suggesting that they attached kinetochore microtubules prior to anaphase onset. (biologists.org)
  • appear
  • Most likely this suppression was the result of a series of chromosomal inversions on the Y chromosome, which would also explain why the genes appear to be in order on the X but scrambled on the Y," Page explains. (abc.net.au)
