Characterization of the mechanisms of HERV-K (HML-2) transcription during human mammary epithelial cell transformation

Montesion, Meagan.

Abstract: Increasing evidence suggests that repetitive elements may play a role in host gene regulation, particularly through the donation of alternative promoters, enhancers, splice sites, and termination signals. Elevated transcript expression of the endogenous retrovirus group HERV-K (HML-2) is seen in many human cancers, although the identity of the individual proviral loci contributing to thi... read more
