Human telomerase represses ROS-dependent cellular responses to Tumor Necrosis Factor-α without affecting NF-κB activation.


In addition to its well-established role in telomere synthesis, telomerase exerts non-canonical functions that may promote cancer and stem cell survival, notably by lowering reactive oxygen species (ROS) levels and acting as transcriptional cofactor in Wnt-β-catenin signaling pathway. We investigated the impact of telomerase on ROS-dependent and… (More)
