Title:
Expression pattern analysis of transcribed HERV sequences is complicated by ex vivo recombination. 
Abstract:
BACKGROUND: The human genome comprises numerous human endogenous retroviruses (HERVs) that formed millions of years ago in ancestral species. A number of loci of the HERV-K(HML-2) family are evolutionarily much younger. A recent study suggested an infectious HERV-K(HML-2) variant in humans and other primates. Isolating such a variant from human individuals would be a significant finding for human biology. RESULTS: When investigating expression patterns of specific HML-2 proviruses we encountered...    »
