An 8.3-kb human endogenous retroviral-tRNA(Glu) (HERV-E)-encoding cDNA clone and a 1.5-kb genomic clone were isolated from a Chinese-derived cervical cancer cell line, CC7T, and their sequences determined. The former is a full-length endogenous retroviral cDNA containing corresponding u5-gag-pol-env-u3-r regions. The latter is a partial retroviral DNA… CONTINUE READING
