Abstract

Telomeres are the nucleoprotein caps of chromosomes. Their length must be tightly regulated in order to maintain the stability of the genome. This is achieved by the intricate network of interactions between different proteins and protein-RNA complexes. Different organisms use various mechanisms for telomere length homeostasis. However, details of these mechanisms are not yet completely understood. In this review we have summarized our latest achievements in the understanding of telomere length regulation in budding yeasts.
