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.… Continue reading Researchers found new type of repair used by telomeres to form new DNA
