|Sending out an SOS: How telomeres incriminate cells that can't divide http://www.salk.edu/news/pressrelease_details.php?press_id=547|
This microscope image shows chromosomes in human lung cells exhibiting telomere damage caused by colcemid, a drug that arrests cell division.
The Salk scientists discovered the molecular pathway that initiates a stress response upon treatment with chemotherapy drugs, resulting in a cessation of cell growth or cell death.
