Researchers found new type of repair used by telomeres to form new DNA

(Philadelphia) – Maintaining the ends of chromosomes, called telomeres, allows cells to continuously divide and achieve immortality. In a new study published this week in Nature, senior author Greenberg and colleagues have developed a first-of-its- kind system to observe repair to broken DNA in newly synthesized telomeres, an effort which has implications for designing new cancer drugs. …
