SUMMARY PARAGRAPH for TEL13L-TR2

TEL13L-TR2 is the 48-bp internal stretch of telomeric repeats on the left arm of chromosome XIII. The telomeric repeat is a G-rich terminal sequence of the form (TG1-3)n or more precisely ((TG)1-6TG2-3)n (1). The repeats are maintained by telomerase and there is generally 300(+/-)75 bp of TG1-3 at a given end (1). Telomeric repeats function in completing chromosome replication and protecting the ends from degradation and end-to-end fusions (1).

Other features of TEL13L, the left telomeric region of chromosome XIII, include an X element core sequence TEL13L-XC, a region of X element combinatorial repeats TEL13L-XR, a short Y' (Y'-S) element TEL13L-YP, and an additional terminal region of telomeric repeats TEL13L-TR1.
