Control of telomere growth by interactions of RAP1 with the most distal telomeric repeats

TELOMERES, the specialized DNA–protein structures at the ends of eukaryotic chromosomes, are required for chromosomal stability and integrity1–3. Regulation of the overall length of the telomeric DNA repeat tract is likely to be a key requirement for its various biological roles. We have studied telomere length regulation in the yeast Kluyveromyces lactis… (More)
