Mystery solved as protein expressed in response to telomere shortening identified.

Telomeres are critical for maintaining genomic integrity with telomere dysfunction or shortening commonly acquired during the process of tumour development.  To add to this cancer cells require a mechanism to … Continue Reading Mystery solved as protein expressed in response to telomere shortening identified.

Researchers identify new enzyme critical to maintaining human telomere length.

Telomeres are repetitive nucleotide sequences located at the termini of chromosomes.  Telomere shortening in humans can induce cellular old-age, which blocks cell division. This mechanism prevents genomic instability and development … Continue Reading Researchers identify new enzyme critical to maintaining human telomere length.
