In this article, we report a simple, rapid, and efficient method to detect telomerase activity: the premature termination of telomeric extension-PCR (PTEP). Similar to the telomeric repeat amplification protocol (TRAP), this method is based on PCR amplification following the in vitro telomerase reaction, while the in vitro telomerase reaction here is prematurely, rather than randomly, terminated. Apart from this, the telomeric extension products are used as initial primers, instead of asdoi:10.2144/03351md03 pmid:12866416 fatcat:lsatonnm2bhvlfpwnrvfem3u3e
