Abstract: Human endogenous retroviruses (HERVs) result from the integration of retroviral DNA into germline cells. The recently active human MMTV-like HML-2 group has been the focus of this project. An analysis of the HML-2 group reveals their representation in the published genome by ~90 full-length proviruses and ~1000 solitary-LTRs. The HML- 2 proviruses can be divided into three subgroups, bas... read more
