Product Overview


It is well known that primary cells undergo only a predetermined and limited number of cell divisions in culture. After doubling the population (the number varies with species, cell type, and culture conditions), the primary cells enter a so-called state of replication senescence, in which they no longer divide. To overcome aging, there are several methods for immortalizing mammalian cells in culture. The latest discovery of cell immortalization is through the expression of telomerase reverse transcriptase protein (TERT). It is particularly useful for cells that are most affected by telomere length, including many human cell types. This protein is usually silent in most somatic cells. When hTERT is introduced exogenously, these cells can avoid replication senescence by maintaining sufficient telomere length. However, overexpression of hTERT in certain cell types (especially in epithelial cells) cannot induce cell immortalization.
