[Evolution from retrotransposons to retroviruses: origin of the env gene].

Abstract

In genome of Drosophila melanogaster, various families of retrotransposons with different combination of functional domens and mechanisms of transposition are present. However only retrotransposons of gypsy family are retroviruses related to errantiviruses. Other families seemingly appeared as intermediate forms of retroviruses evolution. Despite the fact… (More)
