another telomere-regulating enzyme found

Identifying enzymes involved in maintaining telomere length in mammalian cells has been slow going, requiring blocking individual proteins’ functions then growing the cells in the lab and looking for differences in telomere length between experimental and control cells. In addition to taking at least three months before detectable differences arose, blocking proteins that were required for cell survival would kill the cells before such differences could be seen.
