To investigate the relationship between TGF- and TERT in regulating tumor cell proliferation, we hypothesized that TGF- regulation of the cell cycle progress is mediated by mechanisms involving TGF- regulation of the downstream target gene TERT. In the present study, we demonstrate that TGF- -induced pancreatic tumor cell apoptosis is inhibited by TERT over-expression in pancreatic cancer cells.
