Cell division requires a balanced level of non-coding RNA for chromosome stability: HKU biologists discover cell division requires a balanced level of non-coding RNA for chromosome stability

Scientists have discovered that centromeric DNA is used as a template to produce a non-protein coding, centromeric RNA (ribonucleic acid), that is essential for chromosome stability. If there is too much or too little centromeric RNA (cenRNA), the centromere will be defective and chromosomes will be lost.
