Term Detail
GO term:chromosome, telomeric region
Synonym: telomere
GO id:GO:0000781
Definition:The terminal region of a linear chromosome that includes the telomeric DNA repeats and associated proteins.
CommentsNote that this term can be used in place of the obsolete cellular component term 'telomere ; GO:0005696'. Use with caution because this term refers to a specific region of the chromosome and not a protein complex.
Number of paths to term: 17
