What can you expect from a eukaryotic cell lacking telomerase?
1. likely to become cancerous 2. production of fragments Okazaki 3. the inability to repair thymine dimers 4. reducing the length of chromosome 5. sensitivity to sunlight
4. reduction in chromosome length enzyme telomerase can replace small segments of DNA known as telomeres, which are otherwise lost in a cell to divide by mitosis. They have demonstrated an important role in the aging process.
