RNAi screen for telomerase reverse transcriptase transcriptional regulators identifies HIF1alpha as critical for telomerase function in murine embryonic stem cells.


In various types of stem cells, including embryonic stem (ES) cells and hematopoietic stem cells, telomerase functions to ensure long-term self-renewal capacity via maintenance of telomere reserve. Expression of the catalytic component of telomerase, telomerase reverse transcriptase (Tert), which is essential for telomerase activity, is limiting in many… (More)
