Telomerase: • A ribonucleoprotein complex, with RNA and protein components, in all eukaryotes • Required for lengthening the ends of telomeric DNA by reverse transcriptase Without Telomerase: • Unable to lengthen chromosomes, DNA shortens with each replication • Results in the loss of genetic information and greater susceptibility to mutation Unknown: • The exact amino acid interactions of the telomeric proteins • The nature of the interaction between certain telomeric proteins The Study will: • Examine the relations of three telomeric proteins, TRF1, TRF2, and TIN2 • Attempt to form complexes with protein fragments of decreasing size (Figure 1) • Examine the interaction between TRF1 and TRF2 • Lead to greater understanding concerning telomeric protein binding

Determination of telomeric protein interaction binding sites between amino acids 58-268 of TRF1 and 224-276 of TIN2 and between amino acids 42-245 of TRF2 and 203-361 of TIN2 Anstett, Danielle (Kalamazoo College, 2006)Interactions of telomeric protein-protein complexes have important implications in the development of diseases such as cancer. Approximately 90% of all cancer cases are associated with the reactivation of telomerase ...
Rodriguez, Braeden (Kalamazoo College, 2015)The overuse of antibiotics in the fields of medicine and food production have led to an unprecedented trend of antibiotic resistance that has been called “as big a risk as terrorism”. A potential solution to this dilemma ...
