Carcinoma and Adjacent Tissues Telomerase Activity in Head and Neck Squamous Cell

Abstract

The primary function of telomerase is the synthesis of telomeric DNA, which is the main pathway by which telomere length is maintained in the human germline and stem cells. Activation of telomerase is associated with elongation of telomeres and cell immortalization. Recently, telomerase activity has been detected in tissues from many human cancers but not… (More)
