G-strand overhangs on telomeres in telomerase-deficient mouse cells
(Oxford University Press, 1999-10-15)
Telomeres of eukaryotic chromosomes contain 3' overhangs which are thought to be essential for the maintenance of proper chromosome end structure and function. We examined the requirement for telomerase activity for the ...
Longevity, Stress Response, and Cancer in Aging Telomerase-Deficient Mice
(Cell Press, 1999-03-05)
Telomere maintenance is thought to play a role in signaling cellular senescence; however, a link with organismal aging processes has not been established. The telomerase null mouse provides an opportunity to understand the ...
Short telomeres and ataxia-telangiectasia mutated deficiency cooperatively increase telomere dysfunction and suppress tumorigenesis
(American Association of Cancer Research, 2003-12-01)
To examine the role of ataxia-telangiectasia mutated (Atm) in telomere function, we generated Atm and telomerase null mice (Atm(-/-) mTR(-/-) iG6 mice). These mice exhibited increased germ cell death and chromosome fusions ...
