Potential relevance to the human ageing process

Main reason for selection
Entry selected based on evidence linking the gene product to a pathway or mechanism linked to ageing
Description

TERF1 associates with the telomeres and appears to be an important regulator of telomere biology [73]. Its role in human ageing is unknown.
