Is it possible to artificially simulate telamores?

  1. Dec 7, 2012 #1
    Is it possible to create artificial enzymes that can simulate telamores? I read somewhere that nanocircle DNA made this potentially possible. I would think that this would be an extremely helpful addition to the anti-aging community. This makes me wonder if we could somehow create a system in which constant telamorace is being pumped in and replaced; could we also pair this with some sort of modification that would only target specific cells (for instance, avoid potentially cancerous cells)? Please, bear with me. I'm only a high school student; I haven't even took biology yet.

    Potential Cancer cells? Almost every other cell can turn cancerous under the right conditions (or lack thereof).
