    Telomeres are sections of DNA that form protective caps at the ends of chromosomes, a bit like the plastic coating found at the tips of shoelaces. Without these protective tips, DNA gets damaged over...

    The telomeres are special structures on the chromosome ends that are essential for providing protection from enzymatic end-degradation and maintaining chromosomal and genomic stability. This is the...

    Telomere length is the result of the equilibrium between shortening and lengthening mechanisms, and in many different organisms there is a decrease in length with increasing age. This suggests that...

    Southern blotting and terminal restriction fragment analysis have traditionally been regarded as the gold standard for measuring telomere length. Nevertheless, due to its labor-intensive and...

    A ribonucleoprotein enzyme complex known as telomerase maintains telomere length in cancer cells by adding TTAGGG repeats onto the telomeric ends, compensating for the normal shortening of telomeres...

    To circumvent active DNA damage pathways that are prompted by critically short telomeres, cells must contend with the loss of telomere repeats due to various causes either by copying repeats using...
