Endogenous plant pararetroviruses (EPRVs) were identified as integrated counterparts of most members of the plant virus family Caulimoviridae and represent repetitive elements that are ubiquitous in the plant kingdom. They are often located in pericentromeric regions of plant chromosomes in the vicinity of retrotransposon sequences. Depending on their… CONTINUE READING
