Sequence Annotation Notes
2004-10-12The orientation of this centromere was reversed (from Watson to Crick) to accommodate annotation of the centromeric DNA elements CDEI, CDEII, and CDEIII based on Wieland et al. and Espelin et al.

Mapping Notes
1992-10-01Edition 11: cen8-pet1-arg4 distances in Edition 10 are incorrect; new data resulted in the repositioning of these genes as well as put2 and crl15

1996-09-21Edition 13: There are three conserved sequence elements in the centromere that are sufficient for mitotic and meiotic segregation. CDEI (8bp) is required for mitotic segregation; although most assays indicate it is dispensable for meiotic chromosome segregation, it is needed for meiosis I plasmid disjunction. CDEII (78-86 bp A-T rich region) is specifically required for meiosis I disjunction. CDEIII (25 bp) is essential for both mitotic and meiotic segregation.
