TEL15R-TR is the 18-bp terminal stretch of telomeric repeats on the right arm of chromosome XV. 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 TEL15R, the right telomeric region of chromosome XV, include an X element core sequence TEL15R-XC, a region of X element combinatorial repeats TEL15R-XR, and a long Y' (Y'-L) element TEL15R-YP.
