Human Telomerase Rna Interacting Protein Gene


The invention provides methods and compositions relating to a human telomerase and related nucleic acids, including four distinct human telomerase subunit proteins called p140, p105, p48 and p43 having human telomerae-specific activity. The proteins may be produced recombinantly from transformed host cells from the disclosed telomerase encoding nucleic acids or purified from human cells. Also included are human telomerase RNA components, as well as specific, functional derivative thereof. The invention provides isolated telomerase hybridization probes and primers capable of specifically hybridizing with the disclosed telomerase gene, telomerase-specific binding agents such as specific antibodies, and methods of making and using the subject compositions in diagnosis, therapy and in the biopharmaceutical industry.
