TERT codes for telomerase reverse enzyme which is essential for maintaining telomeres (the repeated segments of DNA at the end of chromosomes). Telomeres protect chromosomes from abnormally sticking together or breaking down.
A medium to high impact genetic variation in this gene is associated with a decrease in telomere length which in turn can result in accelerated ageing. Variations can contribute toward increased risk for non-melanoma skin cancers.
