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. He said that psychological stress play an important rol...

Switching Off Protein Could Play Key Role In Success Of Radiation Therapy For Cancer

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...

Link between Old Cells and Ageing probed

... important indicator for replicative senescence is telomere dysfunction that stops the division of cells. Infact, scientists did the hair splitting task of counting the cells with bio markers. Their finding revealed that the number of senescent cells increased with advancing age, with cells present in 5 yr ol...

Telomerase Vital In Maintaining Ability of Stem Cell to Multiply

...e genetic basis gets obscured due to the inherited telomere length and not the gene. "If you were to search for the genetic mutation behind this mouse's disease, you wouldn't find it -- there isn't one," says Greider. "These mice develop disease only because their telomeres are short, and having telomerase do...

Chromosome Ends Trigger DNA Damage Response For Telomere Protection

...stability and the DNA damage machinery. An exposed telomere could readily be taken for a break and recognized as damage, and thus, have to be distinguished from DNA breaks that initiate a DNA damage response. To prevent the cell's DNA repair machinery from confusing telomeres with broken strands of DNA that ...
