  3. Structure and Behaviour of Yeast Telomeres
    Virginia A Zakian; Fiscal Year: 2010
    ..Many of the proteins involved in telomere length regulation in humans were first identified in yeast, which continues to serve as key model for understanding the human enzyme. ..
  4. DNA REPLICATION AND CHROMOSOME STRUCTURE IN YEAST
    Virginia A Zakian; Fiscal Year: 2010
    ..These studies will lay the groundwork for the identification and analysis of human proteins with similar functions. ..
  5. Structure and Behaviour of Yeast Telomeres
    Virginia Zakian; Fiscal Year: 2009
    ..In addition, telomerase is expressed but at very low levels in human stem cells, and even modest reductions in this level can lead to stem cell failure with dire effects on life span. ..
  6. Structure and Behaviour of Yeast Telomeres
    Virginia A Zakian; Fiscal Year: 2011
    ..Many of the proteins involved in telomere length regulation in humans were first identified in yeast, which continues to serve as key model for understanding the human enzyme. ..
  7. STRUCTURE & BEHAVIOR OF YEAST TELOMERES
    Virginia Zakian; Fiscal Year: 2002
    ..Telomeres are well conserved from yeast to humans. An analysis of yeast proteins that affect telomere structure or function is likely to be relevant to an understanding of genetic instability in humans. ..
