Descritos pela primeira vez em 1930, os telômeros são estruturas especializadas localizadas nas extremidades dos cromossomos eucarióticos lineares, constituídos de seqüências de nucleotídeos, (5 ′ -TTAGGG-3 ′) repetidas em tandem cuja principal função é manter a integridade e estabilidade dos cromossomos, prevenindo a senescência.
