Abstract

Telomeres, the natural termini of eukaryotic chromosomes, have been the subject of intense interest during the last decade because of the roles that these chromosome termini perform in both cancer and aging. As we become more cognizant of the consequences of telomere dysfunction on several aspects of human health, significant attention is focused on understanding at a molecular level how the many telomere-associated factors perform their activities.
