PCR and in situ hybridization studies of telomerase subunits in human non-neoplastic livers.

Telomerase, a ribonucleoprotein enzyme associated with cellular immortality, consists of human telomerase RNA component (hTERC), human telomerase protein 1 (hTEP1), and human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT). In this study, the expression of these subunits was examined in non-neoplastic livers [13 cases of chronic viral hepatitis (CVH), 16 of… CONTINUE READING
