The biological importance of centromere distribution in the nucleus, which is classified as polarized or dispersed, has been debated. Molecular and cytogenic analyses have revealed that two regulatory processes establish a dispersed distribution and that centromere distribution might be linked to the maintenance of genome integrity.
