Detailed evolutionary studies have been conducted on specific systems with some surprising results. Two issues remain unclear. First, there is remarkable retention of association of orthologes of proteins involved in other cellular functions at telomeres of other organisms. We will present examples from the literature as well as new research in the area. We will try to address the question as to whether telomeres contain proteins that evolve more rapidly to accommodate the very specific needs of each organisms regardless of phylogenetic relationship.
