    • Duplication and Diversification of Arabidopsis thaliana Telomerase RNP Components 

      Cifuentes-Rojas, Catherine (2012-02-14)
      Telomerase is a highly regulated ribonucleoprotein complex that stabilizes eukaryotic genomes by replenishing telomeric repeats on chromosome ends. Defects in telomerase RNP components involving the catalytic subunit TERT ...
    • Novel Players in Telomere Maintenance and Beyond 

      Xie, Xiaoyuan (2017-04-28)
      Telomeres are specialized nucleoprotein caps at the end of linear chromosomes, critical for genome stability. A major function of telomeres is to distinguish chromosome ends from ends of double strand breaks. A second ...
    • Telomere Dynamics in Arabidopsis thaliana 

      Renfrew, Kyle Brayton (2014-11-06)
      Telomeres are the physical ends of eukaryotic chromosomes. Because chromosome ends resemble double–strand breaks, telomere binding proteins mask telomeres from DNA damage response machinery. Consequently, telomere protection ...
    • Telomere Regulation in Arabidopsis thaliana by the CST Capping Complex and DNA Damage Response Proteins 

      Boltz, Kara A. (2013-09-11)
      The ends of chormosomes are capped by telomeres, which distinguish the termini from damaged DNA. Paradoxically, DNA repair proteins are also required for telomere maintenance. How DNA repair pathways are regulated to ...
    • Telomeres and telomere binding proteins in Arabidopsis thaliana 

      Shakirov, Yevgeniy Vitalievich (Texas A&M University, 2004-09-30)
      Telomeres are important protein-DNA structures at the ends of linear eukaryotic chromosomes that are necessary to prevent chromosome fusions and exonuclease attack. We found that telomere tracts in Arabidopsis are fairly ...
