Endogenous Retroviruses

Human endogenous retroviruses (HERV) proviruses comprise a significant part of the human genome, with approximately 98,000 ERV elements and fragments making up nearly 8%. Jaagsiekte sheep retrovirus (JSRV) is a beta retrovirus which is the causative agent of a contagious lung cancer in sheep called Jaagsiekte. Koala retrovirus was initially described as a novel endogenous retrovirus found within the koala genome and in tissues as free virions. The murine leukemia viruses are group/type VI retroviruses belonging to the gamma retroviral genus of the Retroviridae family. 

 

The ERVS are viral elements derived from retroviruses and their genome is resembled closely and they play an active role in genome shaping.
