Abstract

Telomeres cap the ends of linear chromosomes and prevent them from being recognized as double-strand breaks needing repair. How they go about hiding the ends from the DNA-repair apparatus is becoming a broader question, as a new study identifies an increasingly incestuous relationship between DNA-repair factors and telomere-binding proteins.
