POSITION FOR GRADUATE STUDENT AT THE SWISS INSTITUTE FOR EXPERIMENTAL
CANCER RESEARCH (ISREC) IN EPALINGES (SWITZERLAND)
to study TELOMERASE AND DNA END REPLICATION
in yeast and/or Euplotes using biochemical, molecular and/or genetic
Telomerase is a ribonucleoprotein enzyme essential for the complete
replication of chromosome ends. Its activation has been proposed to be
important during tumorigenesis. Objects of future research projects
(1) Identification of additional protein components of telomerase by
biochemical or genetic means.
(2) Understand telomerase structure and mechanism: establishment of a
reconstitution system from recombinant components.
(3) Telomerase regulation.
(4) DNA end replication: establishment of an in vitro system and
identification of factors other than telomerase involved in DNA end
