telomere.noun
is a tiny section containing and protecting (they stop erosion of DNA at the ends of chromosomes and can reverse aging) specialized pieces of DNA at the end of each of your chromosomes, ensuring that each cycle of DNA replication completes its process; once capped (like the plastic tips on the end of showlaces), the cell 'knows' it's ok to divide, as they come complete with a built in clock! A brilliant design!

As the telomeric DNA becomes shorter, it may become uncapped, so a signal is sent to the cell to prevent further division, thus, ensuring the integrity of the system like you may say to your kids; "no more burning the candle at both ends; get some sleep and restore yourself." 

In the capped telomere are DNA proteins used for 'packaging', and DNA repair enzymes. How they are joined together is a real mystery.
