Important To Understand University Of Texas
1,893 wordsAn Introduction To Telomere and Telomerase The telomere-telomerase hypothesis of aging and cancer is based on the findings that most human tumors have telomerase activity while normal human somatic cells do not. An emerging hypothesis is that the up regulation or re expression of telomerase is a critical event responsible for continuous tumor cell growth. In contrast to normal cells, tumor cells show no loss of average telomere length with cell division. Through this suggestion immortal ization ...

660 wordsI discovered that mitochondria evolved from the chloroplast (Audersirk p. 369). The endosymbotic hypothesis championed most force full by Lynn Margulis of the University of Massachusetts, propose that cells acquired the precursors of mitochondria and chloroplast by engulfing certain types of bacteria. This happens by the aerobe bacteria that absorbs those molecules and used energy oxygen to complete their metabolism. By gaining a high range of energy, using large food resources, great amount of ...
