A putative telomerase activator has tissue-specific effects on telomere length in a developing songbird

Sarah Wolf, Keegan Stansberry, Kristen Content & Kimberly Rosvall
There is good evidence that telomeres predict variation in health and longevity, yet it is unclear whether these patterns are causally derived from telomeres per se, in part because relatively little research directly manipulates telomere length during early life, when telomere shortening is most dynamic. Here, we test how the telomerase activator TA-65 (i.e., cycloastrogenol) affects telomere length in five tissues during the peak of growth in the wild tree swallow (Tachycineta bicolor). Following 8...
