I have just studied DNA Replication for my Biology Class and I have this question that leaves me stuck, though I have tried to figure it out myself.
During telomere replication, I am aware Telomerase elongates the 3' end of the template strand on both molecules and then DNA repair Polymerase comes in to fill in the gap that could not be previously synthesised after the last primer. After this is complete, we would have the T-loop formation and Shelterin complex arrangement to protect these ends and form what we know as telomeres. However, if we take both DNA molecules, this only happens at one end of each of them, right? As the other end would correspond to the leading strand.
So I am confused: do telomeres just appear at one end of the chromosome?
