Emergence of intracellular genetic parasites from ancient retroviruses

Abstract

Background Endogenous retroviruses are genetic parasites of mammalian genomes. They are « remnants » of ancestral infections by retroviruses that had integrated into the germ line of the host and were then transmitted vertically, in a Mendelian fashion. Studies of several endogenous retrovirus families have led to the identification of functional elements… (More)
