Telomerase activity in human cancer.

Abstract

The chromosome ends are specialized nucleoprotein structures called telomeres, which are essential for stable chromosome maintenance. In tumor-derived cell lines telomeres are maintained by the ribonucleoprotein enzyme telomerase. Telomerase activity is repressed in almost all normal human somatic cells. Due to the end replication problem, progressive… (More)
