A Protein Which Specifically Binds to Single Stranded TTAGGGn Repeats

Nucleic Acids Res. 1992 Mar 25;20(6):1387-91. doi: 10.1093/nar/20.6.1387.


Nuclei from tissues of many vertebrates contain a soluble 37 kd protein which binds with a high degree of specificity to oligonucleotides which contain the G rich strand of the telomeric terminal repeats, TTAGGG. In some tissues this is an abundant nuclear protein.
