Loss of TRF2 by radiation-induced apoptosis in HL60 cells.


PURPOSE A telomere consists of the short tandem DNA repeats of (T2AG3)n localized to the distal ends of chromosomes. Telomere repeat binding factor 2 (TRF2) has been implicated in the protection of chromosome ends. Recently, it has been reported that the loss of TRF2 induces apoptosis by various stimuli or genetic technique, however, the effects of… (More)
