This intrinsic brake of telomerase refers to a pause signal, encoded within the RNA template of telomerase itself, for the enzyme to stop DNA synthesis at the end of the sequence 'GGTTAG'.
When telomerase restarts DNA synthesis for the next DNA repeat, this pause signal is still active and limits DNA synthesis.
