Study reveals candidate targets for anti-retroviral therapeutics

...st ?elements) encode proteins that are homologs of retroviral proteins. The proteins encoded by Ty elements and the steps of the life cycle in yeast are similar to the proteins encoded by retroviruses and their life cycles in animal cells. Scientists believe that these simple elements in a single-celled organis...

... the machinery that helps dictate the placement of retroviral integration sites within chromosomes," says Bushman. Bushman notes that finding that LEDGF is part of the cellular apparatus necessary for HIV replication is important to the field of gene therapy. Controlling where gene-therapy vehicles insert in t...

Scientists discover new regulating mechanism in cells

...ause it has something important in common with the retroviral proteins. The mRNA in both cases does not pass through the processing step of the four-step protein-making process. Normally, that processing step also adds a signal to the mRNA that facilitates the final making of the protein. Because mRNAs like t...

Researchers discover that sheep need retroviruses for reproduction

...retroviruses can be considered remnants of ancient retroviral infections, Spencer said. Many scientists believed these endogenous retroviruses were junk DNA, he said. "Indeed, these endogenous retroviruses are usually harmless and generally contain mutations that prevent them from producing infectious retr...

Ancient retrovirus sheds light on modern pandemic

...r many millions of years, and so humans share many retroviral DNA fragments with their primate cousins. Such vestiges of primitive infection, rendered inactive by eons of genetic mutation, make up about 8 percent of the human genome.
