<p>A) Analysis of telomerase activity in primary CEC cultures, the chicken fibroblast cell line DF-1 with or without TERT expression, and the quail QT35 cancer cell line using TRAP assays. TRAP products representing telomere elongation and internal control (IC) are indicated. B) RT-qPCR of vTR copies in polyclonal empty vector, vTR or AU5 QT35 cell lines induced with 1 µg/ml doxycycline (Dox) for 3 and 5 d or left uninduced. Data is shown as relative quantitation (RQ) of vTR copies relative to quail GAPDH RNA copies that served as an endogenous control. C) Percent (%) confluency of vector, vTR, and AU5 cell lines over the course of 31 d. Results are shown as means and standard errors of three independent experiments. <i>P</i> values were determined between each group using Student's <i>t</i> tests.</p
