Go Annotations as Summary Text (Tabular View) (GO Graph)

GO curators for mouse genes have assigned the following annotations to the gene product of Terc. (This text reflects annotations as of Tuesday, May 26, 2015.)
Summary from NCBI RefSeq

Telomerase is a ribonucleoprotein polymerase that maintains telomere ends by addition of the telomere repeat TTAGGG. The enzyme consists of a protein component with reverse transcriptase activity, and an RNA component which serves as a template for the telomere repeat. Deregulation of telomerase expression in somatic cells may be involved in oncogenesis. Telomerase may also participate in chromosomal repair, since de novo synthesis of telomere repeats may occur at double-stranded breaks. In contrast with human telomerase, murine telomerase is expressed in many normal postnatal somatic tissues. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
