Surprises from the chromosome front: lessons from Arabidopsis on telomeres and telomerase.

Abstract

Telomeres serve two vital functions: They act as a buffer against the end-replication problem, and they prevent chromosome ends from being recognized as double-strand DNA (dsDNA) breaks. These functions are orchestrated by the telomerase reverse transcriptase and a variety of telomere protein complexes. Here, we discuss our recent studies with Arabidopsis… (More)
