DNA Structure and Replication

ID #1130

How many telomeric regions does a chromosome have? Is it two or four? And how many arms does it have? 2 again or 4?

Each chromosome arm ends in a telomere. Since there are a pair of sister chromatids in a mitotic chromosome, that means 4 arms and therefore 4 telomeres.
