We have found that the RTVL-H family of human endogenous retrovirus-like elements was highly expressed in lung squamous cell carcinoma tissue and several human cell lines. We determined the nucleotide sequences of several cDNA clones and found a unique sequence that was not present in the published "prototypic" RTVL-H sequence. An open reading frame in this region encoded an amino acid sequence homologous to the conserved sequence in the transmembrane envelope protein of various retroviruses… CONTINUE READING
