A new theory is proposed to explain the synthesis of the 5′ ends of linear DNA molecules. It suggests that chromosome ends consist of palindromic base sequences. These can form self-complementary hairpin loops, which can be converted by DNA ligase, a specific endonuclease, and DNA polymerase, into completely replicated ends.
