Telomerase reverse transcriptase mRNA expression in peripheral lymphocytes of patients with chronic HBV and HCV infections.


SUMMARY Telomerase activity is present at low levels in peripheral lymphocytes (PL) and is upregulated upon activation, possibly protecting PL from telomere shortening. As decreased telomere length is considered a sign of cellular senescence, telomerase may, therefore, play an important role on immune function, organ regeneration and carcinogenesis. So far… (More)
