Cell immortalization refers to the ability of a cell to bypass normal cellular mechanisms that limit its lifespan, allowing it to continuously divide and proliferate beyond the typical limits imposed on regular somatic cells. In normal cells, there are mechanisms in place, such as telomere shortening and checkpoints in the cell cycle, that eventually lead to senescence or programmed cell death (apoptosis) after a certain number of divisions.

Immortalized cells, on the other hand, have acquired genetic or molecular changes that enable them to overcome these limitations. One common mechanism of cell immortalization involves the activation of telomerase, an enzyme that maintains the length of telomeres, the protective caps on the ends of chromosomes. Telomerase prevents the progressive shortening of telomeres during cell divisions, allowing the cells to continue dividing without entering senescence or undergoing apoptosis.

Cell immortalization is a characteristic often associated with cancer cells, as many cancer cells have acquired the ability to proliferate indefinitely. However, it’s important to note that not all immortalized cells are cancerous, and there are non-cancerous cell lines that have been immortalized for research purposes, such as HeLa cells.

Understanding the mechanisms of cell immortalization is crucial in cancer research and has implications for studying aging, stem cell biology, and various diseases.
