New telomere discovery could help explain why cancer cells never stop dividing
Lausanne, Switzerland, October 4, 2007 A group working at the Swiss Institute for Experimental Cancer Research (ISREC) in collaboration with the University of Pavia has discovered that telomeres, the repeated DNA-protein complexes at the end of chromosomes that progressively shorten every time a ...
Chromosome Ends Trigger DNA Damage Response For Telomere Protection
Researchers from the Salk Institute for Biological Studies have suggested that a localized DNA damage response at telomeres after replication is essential for recruiting the //processing machinery that promotes formation of a chromosome end protection complex.
