A Box H/ACA Small Nucleolar RNA-Like Domain at the Human Telomerase RNA 3′ End
ABSTRACT Simple sequence repeat telomeric DNA is maintained by a specialized reverse transcriptase, telomerase. The integral RNA subunit of telomerase contains a template region that determines theExpand

Human telomerase activation requires two independent interactions between telomerase RNA and telomerase reverse transcriptase.
Inhibition or activation of the reverse transcriptase telomerase can profoundly affect the proliferative capacity of normal cells and cancers. Here, we elucidate structural requirements for functionExpand

Holoenzyme proteins required for the physiological assembly and activity of telomerase.
Many proteins have been implicated in the physiological function of telomerase, but specific roles of telomerase-associated proteins other than telomerase reverse transcriptase (TERT) remainExpand

Distinct biogenesis pathways for human telomerase RNA and H/ACA small nucleolar RNAs.
Functional RNAs are processed according to cues from precursor expression context. The presence of an H/ACA motif within the human telomerase RNA (hTR) suggested that telomerase might utilize theExpand

Biogenesis of telomerase ribonucleoproteins.
Telomerase adds simple-sequence repeats to the ends of linear chromosomes to counteract the loss of end sequence inherent in conventional DNA replication. Catalytic activity for repeat synthesisExpand

Subnuclear shuttling of human telomerase induced by transformation and DNA damage
The telomerase ribonucleoprotein complex caps chromosome ends by adding telomeric repeats. Here we show that catalytically active human telomerase has a regulated intranuclear localization that isExpand

Telomerase: an RNP enzyme synthesizes DNA.
Telomerase is a eukaryotic ribonucleoprotein (RNP) whose specialized reverse transcriptase action performs de novo synthesis of one strand of telomeric DNA. The resulting telomerase-mediatedExpand

RNA-based affinity purification reveals 7SK RNPs with distinct composition and regulation.
Recent studies have uncovered an unanticipated diversity of noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs), although these studies provide limited insight into their biological significance. Numerous general methods forExpand

Human Y5 RNA specializes a Ro ribonucleoprotein for 5S ribosomal RNA quality control.
Humans express four distinct non-protein-coding Y RNAs (ncRNAs). To investigate Y RNA functional diversification, we exploited an RNA-based affinity purification method to isolate ribonucleoproteinsExpand
