A cistron is a term used to describe the locus (position) on a chromosome responsible for generating a protein.
In eukaryotic genetics, the concept is very similar to that of a gene. In eukaryotes, genes which function together in a single metabolic pathway may be located on different locations on a chromosome, or on different chromosomes altogether. In contrast, in prokaryotes, these genes are often located near each other, and are subject to a common "polycistronic" regulatory mechanism.
