What is a telomere?

Telomeres are distinctive structures found at the ends of our chromosomes. They consist of the same short DNA sequence repeated over and over again.

  • Telomeres are sections of DNA found at the ends of each of our chromosomes.

  • They consist of the same sequence of bases repeated over and over.

  • In humans the telomere sequence is TTAGGG.

  • This sequence is usually repeated about 3,000 times and can reach up to 15,000 base pairs? in length.
