Detection of Human Endogenous Retrovirus Expression in Cancer and Normal Cells
Approximately 8% of the human genome consists of sequences classified as Human endogenous retroviruses (HERVs), which are remnants of ancient retroviral integrations in the human genome. While HERV elements have degenerated over millions of years of evolution and most of them can no longer encode complete proteins, some HERV genes...
