The vast proliferation of human endogenous retroviruses, and their derived and dependent products, in the human genome is increasingly recognized to be important in human embryology, normal physiology and disease. I introduced this subject in a preliminary paper, in 2004, but progress during the ensuing five years demands a wholesale reappraisal. As with mitochondrial symbiosis, we find profound differences, conceptually, and mechanistically, between viral symbiogenesis and what we have come to… CONTINUE READING
