Enzymes that adds DNA nucleotides to the ends of a linear DNA molecule.Extends the tips of the DNA in your?

Telomerase or exonuclease

The answerer is telomerase. It adds length to the ends of linear DNA strands (chromosomes) because each time they are replicated a small piece is lost.

Exo-nuclease, exo meaning outside and nuclease meaning that it cuts DNA. you would expect that enzyme to actually nibble up DNA from the edges inward. Basically the inverse of Telomerase.
