Chromosomes are thread-like structures located inside the nucleus of animal and plant cells. Each chromosome is made of  protein and a single molecule of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). Passed from parents to offspring, DNA contains the specific  instructions that make each type of living creature unique. The constricted region of linear chromosomes is known as the centromere. Although this constriction is called the centromere,  it usually is not located exactly in the center of the chromosome and, in some cases, is located almost at the chromosome's  end. The regions on either side of the centromere are referred to as the chromosome's arms.
