AbstractTelomerase recruitment to telomere is the prerequisite for telomere extension, but the proteins involved in this process are still largely unknown. PinX1 is a telomerase inhibitor and has been implicated in telomere maintenance. Silencing of PinX1 significantly reduced the localization of telomerase to telomere during mid-late S phase, suggesting the involvement of PinX1 in the cell cycle-dependent trafficking of hTERT to telomere. We also revealed that PinX1 mediated the chromosomal localization of hTERT during anaphase. This study revealed the role of PinX1 in telomerase function regulation by mediating its localization inside cells. (C) 2012 Federation of European Biochemical Societies. Published by Elsevier B.V.
