Human short-term repopulating cells have enhanced telomerase reverse transcriptase expression.


Telomerase activity has been suggested to be critically involved in hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) self-renewal. However, it has been unclear whether human HSCs have telomerase activity and how telomerase activity is regulated within the HSC and progenitor pool. Here, we isolated living cord-blood (CB) CD34(+) cells with up-regulated human telomerase reverse… (More)
