Centromere protein I is a protein that in humans is encoded by the CENPI gene.[1][2]

The product of this gene is involved in the response of gonadal tissues to follicle-stimulating hormone. This gene is also a potential candidate for human X-linked disorders of gonadal development and gametogenesis.[2]
