    ..Therefore, we suggest that the Y' element has a novel and potentially important role in trans, in addition to the well characterized role in cis, in telomerase-independent telomere maintenance in yeast. ..

    ..These data suggest Nup2 and Ndj1 support partially overlapping functions that promote two different levels of meiotic chromosome organization necessary to withstand a dynamic stage of the eukaryotic life cycle. ..
