Telomeres and centromere

Structural components essential for replication, inheritance and maintenance of chromosome

  • Replication origin (numerous per chromosome) functions in interphase to duplicate DNA.
  • Centromere (one per chromosome) functions in mitosis and meiosis to segregate sister chromatids.
  • Telomeres (two per chromosome) cap the chromosome ends to protect from degradation and replicate the ends

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for something regarding this.
