The biological world operates on a multitude of scales - from molecules to cells to tissues to organisms to ecosystems. Throughout all these levels runs a common thread: the communication and onward passage of information - from cell to cell, from organism to organism and, ultimately, from generation to generation. This information is stored, at the most fundamental level, in each living cell in our body. But how does this information - no more than a static repository of data -come alive to govern the processes that constitute life? The answer lies in the concerted action of molecular components which cooperate in a series of ingenious processes to bring the information deposited in each of us, in our genome, to life. These components and processes lie at the heart of one of the most endlessly fascinating subjects to engage the minds of scientists today: molecular biology. Molecular Biology: Principles of Genome Function offers a fresh, distinctive approach to the teaching of molecula

Identification and characterization of telomere terminal transferase by Carol W Greider( )

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tetrahymena cell extracts were shown to contain an enzyme activity which synthesizes repeats of the telomeric DNA sequence TTGGGG, de novo onto appropriate telomeric DNA primers. This telomere terminal transferase (telomerase) activity was independent of template DNA and was not inhibited by the drug aphidicolin, a known potent inhibitor of $\alpha$-type DNA polymerases. Different synthetic oligonucleotides containing the G-rich strand telomeric sequences from Tetrahymena, Oxytricha, yeast, trypanosomes and Dictyostelium all primed the addition of TTGGGG repeats in vitro. C-rich strand telomeric oligonucleotides and non-telomeric oligonucleotides did not prime the TTGGGG repeat addition. These results implied that primer recognition by the telomerase involves both specific structural aspects of the G-rich oligonucleotides In addition, the 3$\sp\prime$end sequence of the primers was shown to specify which nucleotides were added first in the reaction

Telomerase and the consequences of telomere dysfunction by Carol W Greider( Visual )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(CIT): Telomeres protect chromosome ends from being recognized as DNA damage and chromosomal rearrangements. Conventional replication leads to telomere shortening, but telomere length is maintained by the enzyme telomerase that synthesizes telomere sequences de novo onto chromosome ends. Telomerase is specialized reverse transcriptase, requiring both a catalytic protein and an essential RNA component. In the absence of telomerase, telomeres shorten progressively as cells divide, and telomere function is lost. For this reason, telomerase is required for cells that undergo many rounds of divisions, especially tumor cells and some stem cells. The Greider lab is focused understanding telomerase and cellular and organismal consequences of telomere dysfunction. We use biochemistry, yeast and mice to examine telomere function. We generated telomerase null mice that are viable and show progressive telomere shortening for up to six generations. In the later generations, when telomeres are short, cells die via apoptosis or senescence. Crosses of these telomerase null mice to other tumor prone mice show that tumor formation can be greatly reduced by short telomeres. We also are using our telomerase null mice to explore the role of telomerase stem cells and aging. In human families, Telomerase mutations cause autosomal dominant dyskeratosis congenita and the associated bone marrow failure. We have developed a strain of mice that are haploinsufficient for telomerase and show many hallmarks of dyskeratosis congenita and age related degenerative disease. Our lab is focused on understanding how short telomeres cause these diseases as well as the mechanisms that regulate telomere length equilibrium. Lecture Objectives: 1. Understand the role of telomerase in telomere length 2. Understand the effect of short telomeres in cancer cell growth 3. Discuss role of telomere shortening in age related disease
