Latest Telomerase Stories
A team of scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies has identified why disruption of a vital pathway in cell cycle control leads to the proliferation of cancer cells.
Researchers from the Japanese Foundation for Cancer Research in Tokyo have discovered that forced elongation of telomeres (extensions on the end of chromosomes) promotes the differentiation of cancer cells, probably reducing malignancy, which is strongly associated with a loss of cell differentiation.
RAP1 is a gene that also protects telomeres.
A new technique featured in the Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE) could lead to the development of a "genetic thermometer" that could assess a patient's health in relation to other individuals.
Researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center have found that alternative splicing – a process that allows a single gene to code for multiple proteins – appears to be a new potential target for anti-telomerase cancer therapy.
Like finally seeing all the gears of a watch and how they work together, researchers from UCLA and UC Berkeley have, for the first time ever, solved the puzzle of how the various components of an entire telomerase enzyme complex fit together and function in a three-dimensional structure.
Researchers studying more than 3,500 patients with heart disease say the length of DNA strands can help predict life expectancy.
Scientists from Carnegie Mellon University have recently discovered that our susceptibility to infections and our future health may be foretold by chromosome tips, known as telomeres. These chromosome tips are special DNA sequences that prevent DNA in chromosomes from unraveling.
The TA-65 Users Survey included the collection of qualitative data gathered through survey research.
