  • Telomere: SFAF
    a complex of repetitive DNA sequences that cap the ends of chromosomes. Telomeres play a role in cellular replication via the telomerase enzyme, which helps determine whether cells are able to replicate. Telomeres shorten each time a cell divides, and signal cell senescence (loss of function) when they reach a critical length.
