TEL08R-TR2 is the 154-bp internal stretch of telomeric repeats spanning dubious ORF YHR217C on the right arm of chromosome VIII. 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 TEL08R, the right telomeric region of chromosome VIII, include an X element core sequence TEL08R-XC, a region of X element combinatorial repeats TEL08R-XR, a short Y' (Y'-S) element TEL08R-YP, and a terminal stretch of telomeric repeats TEL08R-TR1.
