    A conserved function for pericentromeric satellite DNA

    Madhav Jagannathan et al.
    Satellite DNA mediates clustering of multiple chromosomes via formation of chromocenter to encapsulate the full complement of the genome into a single nucleus.

    Major satellite repeat RNA stabilize heterochromatin retention of Suv39h enzymes by RNA-nucleosome association and RNA:DNA hybrid formation

    Oscar Velazquez Camacho et al.

    Chromocenters: Bundling up DNA

    Susan A Gerbi
    Structures known as chromocenters, comprising satellite DNA and proteins such as D1 or HMGA1, help to contain DNA inside the nucleus between cell divisions.

    RNA from a simple-tandem repeat is required for sperm maturation and male fertility in Drosophila melanogaster

    Wilbur Kyle Mills et al.
    Sperm production and male fertility in Drosophila melanogaster depend on transcripts generated from the AAGAG(n) repeated satellite DNA within primary spermatocytes.

    The modular mechanism of chromocenter formation in Drosophila

    Madhav Jagannathan et al.
    Cell biological study reveals the mechanism by which multiple satellite-DNA-binding proteins cooperate to form chromocenter to encapsulate the full complement of chromosomes.

    A population of adult satellite-like cells in Drosophila is maintained through a switch in RNA-isoforms

    Hadi Boukhatmi, Sarah Bray
    Adult muscle progenitors evade differentiation by expressing a short RNA isoform of Zfh1 which is insensitive to regulation by a micro-RNA.

    Haplotypes spanning centromeric regions reveal persistence of large blocks of archaic DNA

    Sasha A Langley et al.
    Genomic polymorphism across centromeric regions of humans is organized into large-scale haplotypes with great diversity, including entire Neanderthal centromeres.
