ERV-L elements: a family of endogenous retrovirus-like elements active throughout the evolution of mammals.

Abstract

We have previously identified in the human genome a family of 200 endogenous retrovirus-like elements, the HERV-L elements, disclosing similarities with the foamy retroviruses and which might be the evolutionary intermediate between classical intracellular retrotransposons and infectious retroviruses. Southern blot analysis of a large series of mammalian… (More)
