Telomeres are nucleoprotein structures at the ends of eukaryotic chromosomes. Telomeres regulate several crucial cellular functions and participate in the control of complex phenotypes, such as aging and cancer. Cell immortalization is strongly associated with the stabilization of telomere length. Therefore, it is suggested that cancer cells achieve immortalization in part through illegitimate activation of telomerase expression. Telomerase reverse transcriptase (TERT) is the rate-limiting catalytic subunit of telomerase. Telomerase is a ribonucleoprotein composed of an internal telomerase RNA template (TERC) and the enzyme TERT. Telomerase is an enzyme uniquely associated with immortal cell lines and is useful for identifying undifferentiated PSCs.
