...g to researchers, where the margins stick and then rip
apart into earthquakes, displacements have been as much as 65 feet, over many hundreds of kilometers, in a matter of only a few minutes. The researchers, led by Christopher W. Fuller at Yale and the University of Washington, used computer simulations...
Chromosome Ends Trigger DNA Damage Response For Telomere Protection
... a full complement of chromosomes would inevitably rip
the fused chromosomes apart. The researchers assert that fusion breakage cycles scramble the genome over time, and cause genome instability, which is a hallmark of cancer cells, and this demonstrates the importance of telomeres in preserving genome...
