Processed pseudogenes of human endogenous retroviruses generated by LINEs: their integration, stability, and distribution.
We report here the presence of numerous processed pseudogenes derived from the W family of endogenous retroviruses in the human genome. These pseudogenes are structurally colinear with the retroviralExpand

Long-term reinfection of the human genome by endogenous retroviruses.
Endogenous retrovirus (ERV) families are derived from their exogenous counterparts by means of a process of germ-line infection and proliferation within the host genome. Several families in the humanExpand

LIME: a new membrane Raft-associated adaptor protein involved in CD4 and CD8 coreceptor signaling.
Lymphocyte membrane rafts contain molecules critical for immunoreceptor signaling. Here, we report identification of a new raft-associated adaptor protein LIME (Lck-interacting molecule) expressedExpand

Characterization of an amphioxus paired box gene, AmphiPax2/5/8: developmental expression patterns in optic support cells, nephridium, thyroid-like structures and pharyngeal gill slits, but not in
On the basis of developmental gene expression, the vertebrate central nervous system comprises: a forebrain plus anterior midbrain, a midbrain-hindbrain boundary region (MHB) having organizerExpand

Molecular cloning and expression of the human and mouse homologues of the Drosophila dachshund gene
Abstract Recent genetic analysis of the Drosophila dachshund (dac) gene has established that dac encodes a novel nuclear protein that is involved in both eye and leg development. In the DrosophilaExpand

Complete genome sequence of the photosynthetic purple nonsulfur bacterium Rhodobacter capsulatus SB 1003.
Rhodobacter capsulatus SB 1003 belongs to the group of purple nonsulfur bacteria. Its genome consists of a 3.7-Mb chromosome and a 133-kb plasmid. The genome encodes genes for photosynthesis,Expand

Cubozoan genome illuminates functional diversification of opsins and photoreceptor evolution
Animals sense light primarily by an opsin-based photopigment present in a photoreceptor cell. Cnidaria are arguably the most basal phylum containing a well-developed visual system. The evolutionaryExpand

Similar integration but different stability of Alus and LINEs in the human genome.
Alus and LINEs (LINE1) are widespread classes of repeats that are very unevenly distributed in the human genome. The majority of GC-poor LINEs reside in the GC-poor isochores whereas GC-rich Alus areExpand

High copy number in human endogenous retrovirus families is associated with copying mechanisms in addition to reinfection.
There are at least 31 families of human endogenous retroviruses (HERVs), each derived from an independent infection by an exogenous virus. Using evidence of purifying selection on HERV genes, we haveExpand

Literature review of baseline information to support the risk assessment of RNAi‐based GM plants
This report is the outcome of an EFSA procurement aiming at investigating and summarising the state of knowledge on (I) the mode-of-action of dsRNA and miRNA pathways, (II) the potential forExpand
