Parent Terms Term With Siblings Child Terms
CENP-A containing nucleosome assembly +   
The formation of nucleosomes containing the histone H3 variant CENP-A to form centromeric chromatin. This specialised chromatin occurs at centromeric region in point centromeres, and the central core in modular centromeres.
fertilization, exchange of chromosomal proteins  
kinetochore assembly +   
negative regulation of histone exchange +  
pericentric heterochromatin assembly +   
positive regulation of histone exchange +  
regulation of centromere complex assembly +   
regulation of histone exchange +  
spermatogenesis, exchange of chromosomal proteins  

Exact Synonyms: CENP-A containing nucleosome assembly at centromere ;   DNA replication-independent nucleosome assembly at centromere ;   centromere-specific histone exchange ;   centromeric DNA replication-independent nucleosome assembly
Related Synonyms: CENP-A deposition ;   CENP-A loading ;   CenH3-containing nucleosome assembly at centromere ;   centromere specific nucleosome exchange
