DAG for GO:0000779id: GO:0000779

name: condensed chromosome, centromeric region
namespace: cellular_component
alt_id: GO:0000780
def: "The region of a condensed chromosome that includes the centromere and associated proteins, including the kinetochore. In monocentric chromosomes, this region corresponds to a single area of the chromosome, whereas in holocentric chromosomes, it is evenly distributed along the chromosome." [GOC:elh, GOC:kmv]
comment: Note that this term can be used in place of the obsolete cellular component term 'centromere ; GO:0005698'. Use with caution because this term refers to a specific region of the chromosome and not a protein complex.
