Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press is a very fast publisher. The basic material was finally collected for the book in July of By November of that year the book was in print. This means that the research being described is current to within half a year -- remarkably short timing for a published hardback book.5/5(1).

Twenty-five years after the disclosure of the telomeric DNA sequence and 22 years after the discovery of telomerase, it has become clear that telomeres and telomerase influence disease of human ageing including cancer.

This book summarizes our current knowledge on the role of telomeres and telomerase in ageing, regeneration, and cancer with. The inhibition of telomerase, at least initially, should produce minimal toxicities to tissues and the mode of action of telomerase inhibitors predicts minimal side effects on normal stem cells that can express telomerase but have longer telomeres.

Thus, telomerase-based therapies should be well tolerated and perhaps with minimal side effect on Cited by: We are pleased to offer the tenth Cold Spring Harbor meeting on Telomeres & Telomerase to bring together a diverse group of scientists studying various molecular, cellular and genetic aspects of telomeres and telomerase biology.

The ends of eukaryotic chromosomes are called telomeres. They were discovered in the late ’s first in flies by Herman Muller and then in corn by Barbara McClintock (reviewed in []).These investigators inferred from the behavior of broken chromosomes that the natural ends of chromosomes were distinguishable from induced DNA breaks and must therefore be a Cited by: We are pleased to offer the ninth Cold Spring Harbor meeting on Telomeres & Telomerase to bring together a diverse group of scientists studying various molecular, cellular and genetic aspects of telomeres and telomerase biology.

Cell division is the process by which a parent cell divides into two or more daughter cells. Cell division usually occurs as part of a larger cell eukaryotes, there are two distinct types of cell division: a vegetative division, whereby each daughter cell is genetically identical to the parent cell (), and a reproductive cell division, whereby the number of chromosomes in the daughter.

Short telomeres predict early onset of the diseases of aging, like heart disease, stroke, some types of cancer, diabetes, and, in some studies, dementia. Short telomeres in young people appear to have health significance as well. For example, short telomeres in the immune cells means they are more likely to become infected with the common cold.

Telomere-binding proteins regulate telomere length. Telomeres are made up of simple G-rich DNA sequence repeats that are packaged into chromatin (Tommerup et al.

) and bound by telomere-specific binding mammalian cells, the shelterin complex consists of TRF1 and TRF2, which bind along the double-stranded telomere sequence and recruit associated Cited by: Telomeres' Relation to Aging and Cancer Scientists can use the length of a telomere to determine the age of a cell and how many more replications it has left.

As cellular division slows, it undergoes a progressive deterioration known as senescence, which we. It may all be in your telomeres. A book coauthored by a Nobel Prize winner says that those shoelace-looking things at the end of your chromosomes determine.
