Sample text

In tissue culture, immortalization of cells, that is, cells that pass through a "crisis" and continue to be able to divide beyond the normal limit, is associated with telomere stabilization and activity of telomerase. Virtually all human tumor-cell lines and approximately 90% of human cancer biopsy specimens exhibit telomerase activity. By contrast, normal human somatic tissues, other than stem cells, do not possess detectable levels of this enzyme. It is an attractive hypothesis that both immortalization and carcinogenesis are associated with telomerase expression.

Radiation produces two breaks in the same arm of the same chromosome. 10. 9 and may result from two breaks in the same arm of the same chromosome, leading to the loss of the genetic information between the two breaks. 10. Illustration of the formation of a deletion by ionizing radiation in an interphase chromosome. It is easy to imagine how two breaks may occur (by a single or two different charged particles) in such a way as to isolate a loop of DNA. The "sticky" ends rejoin, and the deletion is lost at a subsequent mitosis because it has no centromere.
