2,3) Telomeres are the terminal part of chromosomes (similar to the plastic aglets
of shoelaces), which are known to shorten with each cell division because of "end replication losses.
They work like plastic aglets
on shoelaces, preventing chromosomes from fraying and getting chewed up.
There is more and more and more on this ball in this void spinning in this baking heat all encompassed in aglets
Thirteen lace chapes (also known as aglets
or aiglets), one with tiny remnants of lace still inside the tube, together with fragments of garments with eyelets indicate their use as fastening strings.
Our system consists of several agents that cooperate to meet the service demands of user, we distinguish: The interface agent, the mediator agent, analyzer agent, transfer agent and security agent task manager agent and executor agent The agents in our system are implemented using the Java  language and development platform Aglets
One of life's minor but prevalent annoyances is the deterioration of the aglets
on one's shoelaces.
There are no aglets
so they only need to be constructed with one material.
A number of platforms are possible candidates for the implementation, including Aglets
Work Bench from IBM, Odyssey from General Magic and Voyager from Object Space.
43) On the use of pins and aglets
in dressing, see Jenny Tiramani, "Pins and Aglets
', in Tara Hemling and Catherine Richardson, eds.
It was not only instructive but downright fun to find out about everyday "pattens," and how they were worn to elevate shoes from the muck of the streets (Riello); how pins and aglets
were commonly employed across classes to hold cloth together in different styles (Tiramani); how people regularly buried caches of cloths and other objects to--we aren't exactly sure, ward off evil spirits?
Every detail is carefully considered, from the metallic glazes and stacked-leather heels to the signature aglets
that cap each shoelace.
The study provides insights about the interaction between a toxic protein called progerin and telomeres, which cap the ends of chromosomes like aglets
, the plastic tips that bind the ends of shoelaces.
