|Title:||Telomere length dynamics in vascular disease: a review.|
|Citation:||EUR J VASC ENDOVASC SURG, 2010, 40 (1), pp. 17-26|
|Abstract:||Telomeres are specialised DNA-protein complexes which cap the ends of linear chromosomes serving to maintain DNA integrity during cell division. Telomere length naturally shortens with successive cell divisions and represents a cellular marker of biological age. This paper aims to provide an overview of telomere biology and review the evidence for any association between vascular surgical conditions and short telomere length.|
