Cloning and phylogeny of endogenous retroviral elements belonging to the HERV-K LTR in cDNA library of human fetal brain and Xq21.3 region linked to psychosis

Abstract:

Long terminal repeats (LTRs) of the human endogenous retrovirus K family (HERV-K) have been found to be coexpressed with sequences of closely located genes. Five elements of the HERV-K LTR were identified from the cDNA library of a human fetal brain. Two of them (FB-1 and FB-5) are closely related to the human specific HERV-K LTR elements by a phylogenetic analysis. We also investigated such elements within the Xq21.3 region linked to psychosis that was replicated on the Y chromosome after th...
