Research Team Discovers Key Gene For Telomerase Enzyme In Humans

...ells do not containtelomerase, and their telomeres shorten with each cell division until theystop dividing. In cancer cells, however, telomerase is thought to grantthe cell immortality by maintaining telomere length so that the cell neverreceives a signal to stop dividing. "Correlation of telomerase...

UT Southwestern Researchers Find Way To Control Gene Activity, Opening Way For Cancer Drugs

...f Chemistry and Biology published today. Telomeres shorten each time the cell divides, 50 to 70 times during the lifetimeof a normal cell. Once the protective tips of DNA are gone, the cells die. Allhuman cells have a gene for telomerase, but it is switched off in normal cells,except embryonic cells, so the ...

Discovery: Chromosomes Found To End In Big Loops

...hromosomes' total DNA. Because chromosomes shorten as people age, many scientist believetelomeres play some unexplained central role in the body's lifelong biologicclock, Griffith said. Thus, telomeres may be some kind of regulator of celldeath. "Very rarely these days in science does a new r...

Reproductive Signals Affect Lifespan In Roundworm C. Elegans, Offering Possible Insight Into Human Aging Process

...als from germ cells - thesperm and egg in humans - shorten lifespan, while signals from the somaticgonads - the part of the reproductive tissue that surrounds the germ cells -lengthen lifespan, sending equal but opposite signals. If the cells that give rise to the germ line are removed, the animals remainyo...

The protein, called plethodontid receptivity factor (PRF), is part of acomplex mixture of chemicals that the male salamander uses to stimulate thefemale and encourage her to mate. The male pheromon...

Scientists issue telomerase caution

...hromosome. In the absence of telomerase, telomeres shorten with each cell division. Eventually, cells stop dividing when they sense that their telomeres are too short to maintain chromosomal integrity. In contrast, telomerase maintains telomere length by adding nucleotides one at a time to existing chromosom...

Cadmium makes brittle bones in Rocky Mt. birds

Cadmium is the silver-white metal used to manufacture rechargeable batteries, produce alloys with other metals and electroplate chrome on auto parts and appliances. It ha...

Study on chromosome ends may aid cancer research

...ends of shoelaces. In normal conditions, telomeres shorten each time a cell divides, eventually exposing the genetic material and causing the cell to die. In cancer cells, however, telomerase keeps rebuilding the telomere caps, preventing the cell from undergoing its normal aging process. In 1994, Zakian and...

These allow for different degrees of high but controlled force loading of the muscles and bones during training, and may promote the kind of bone str...

Researchers find key to tuberculosis persistence in the body
