Liquid-liquid phase separation (LLPS) is implicated in many cellular processes but the underlying mechanisms have only begun to be understood. My lab develops chem-optogenetic tools to control LLPS in live cells to dissect its functional contributions. In particular, we investigate how LLPS enables telomerase-free cancer cells to achieve immortality through an alternative lengthening of telomere (ALT) pathway for telomere maintenance. I will talk about using chem-optogenetic tools to induce condensates on telomeres and assess their functions in telomere maintenance of telomerase-free cancer cells.
