SUMMARY PARAGRAPH for TEL16L-YP

TEL16L-Yp, the long Y' (Y'-L) element on the left arm of chromosome XVI, contains an ARS consensus sequence, a region of 36-bp repeats, one verified ORF YRF1-7/YPL283C, and two dubious ORFs (YPL283W-A, YPL283W-B).

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 TEL16L, the left telomeric region of chromosome XVI, include an X element core sequence TEL16L-XC, and a region of X element combinatorial repeats TEL16L-XR.
