Telomere Diagnostics, Inc. Company Profile

20:48 EDT 18th June 2019 | BioPortfolio

Telomere Diagnostics, Inc. is a privately held molecular testing company founded in 2010 by four scientists, including the winner of the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2009 for pioneering work in telomere biology. Its lab in Silicon Valley, California, is regulated under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA) as qualified to perform high-complexity clinical testing. The company measures parts of chromosomes called telomeres, the protective caps on the ends of DNA strands that shorten with age, using its proprietary quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) assay, the world’s leading method of measuring Average Telomere Length (ATL). Beyond TeloYears, the company is actively developing other potential uses of ATL to address unmet clinical needs in cardiovascular disease, oncology and reproductive health.

Telomere shortening in adulthood is not caused by smoking, say researchers

A new study suggests that telomere length in adults should be regarded as a static biomarker that does not significantly change during adult life.

Length doesn't matter--telomere damage triggers cellular senescence in the ageing heart

Telomere shortening induces cellular senescence in proliferative cells. Yet, it is presently unclear how it is triggered in post-mitotic cells such as cardiac myocytes. A new study by Anderson et ...

Telomeres, the protective ends of eukaryotic chromosomes, are replicated through concerted actions of conventional DNA polymerases and elongated by telomerase, but the regulation of this process is no...

ENDO: Sex Hormone Levels Tied to Telomere Length in Older Men

WEDNESDAY, March 27, 2019 -- Higher levels of sex hormones, especially estradiol (E2), are associated with leucocyte telomere length (LTL) in older men, according to a study published in the April iss...

The secreted protein S100A7 (psoriasin) is induced by telomere dysfunction in human keratinocytes independently of a DNA damage response and cell cycle regulators
