DNA molecules having telomeres and their consequence

0 votes
In eukaryotic cells the DNA molecules have nucleotide sequences called Telomeres at their ends which do not contain genes.These telomeres protect the genes at the ends of the molecules from being eroded because linear chromosomal DNA gets shorter after each round of DNA replication .An enzyme telomerase catalyses the lengthening of telomeres.In what type of cells wil you expect the activity of the telomerase to be the highest?

1.Specialised cells

2.Germ cells which produce gametes

3.Actively respiring cells

4.Ageing cells
