Telomere Plays an Important Role in Ageing

...said that there existed a seven-year difference in telomere loss between people of the same age, same body mass index, same smoking status, same exercise status who happen to be in a manual job or non-manual job, which roughly divides the social classes.

Inactivation of Rad9 in Tumor Cells Would Be Advantageous In Cancer Therapy

...ion. Rad9 proteins interact with proteins called telomere binding proteins. During the experiment if Rad9 in human cells were inactivated it resulted in damaging the chromosomes and caused end-to-end fusion at telomeres. This disrupted the cell cycle and caused cell death. Because radiation treatments inc...
