Chromosomal stability and cell viability require a proficient telomeric end-capping function. In particular, telomere dysfunction because of either critical telomere shortening or because of mutation of telomere-binding proteins results in increased apoptosis and/or cell arrest. Here, we show that, in turn, DNA damage-induced apoptosis results in a dramatic telomere loss. In particular, using flow cytometry for simultaneous detection of telomere length and apoptosis, we show that cells… CONTINUE READING
