Telomerase, an enzyme essential for the synthesis and maintenance of telomeric DNA and the long-term stability of the genome, is developmentally regulated in plants. Telomerase activity is abundant in reproductive organs but low or undetectable in vegetative organs. Treatment with exogenous auxin, however, overrides this developmental control and induces telomerase in mature leaves. The Arabidopsis thaliana transcription factor TELOMERASE ACTIVATOR1 (TAC1) potentiates some responses to auxin… CONTINUE READING
