Retrovirus is a virus that is composed not of DNA but of RNA. Retroviruses have an enzyme, known as reverse transcriptase, which gives them the unique property of transcribing their RNA into DNA after entering a cell. The retroviral DNA can then integrate into the chromosomal DNA of the host cell and get expressed there.


Most retroviruses also contain one or more additional genes. Some of these represent RNA copies of genes that earlier were picked up from their eukaryotic host.
