Investigations into the mechanisms of telomere structure and function
Telomere dysfunction is most commonly defined as critical shortening; i.e., loss of telomere sequence due to a variety of causes, usually the end-replication problem. However telomeres and their arsenal of associated proteins also provide essential end-capping structure that protects the ends of linear eukaryotic chromosomes. The overall goal of the studies presented here was to provide new insight into underlying mechanisms of telomeric structure and function. We examined the role of telomere function in Acute Myeloid Leukemia. We observed genomic instability in association with radiation-induced ...
