TEL15R-Yp, the long Y' (Y'-L) element on the right arm of chromosome XV, contains an ARS consensus sequence, a region of 36-bp repeats, one uncharacterized ORF YOR396W, and one dubious ORF YOR396C-A.

The Y' element is a repetitive sequence found in many but not all subtelomeric regions next to the telomeric repeats, or adjacent X element combinatorial repeats, either as a single copy or tandem repeat of two to four copies (2, 3). Two main types of Y' elements are known, Y'-L and Y'-S, and any particular array will consist of only one type, not a combination of both (1). Y' elements contain helicase-encoding ORFs which are expressed only during meiosis and in telomerase-deficient cells (1). Possible functions include rescue of telomeres when the telomeric repeats are no longer present and a role in telomere maintenance during meiosis (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 short terminal stretch of telomeric repeats TEL15R-TR.
