  1. 1. Studies of human endogenous retroviruses and of the TGF-beta signaling pathway

    University dissertation from Sölveg. 21, 223 62 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Christian Kjellman; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; high-density filter array; gliom; TGF-beta; XA34; Human endogenous retrovirus; HERV-F; transplantation; serologi; Immunologi; serology; Immunology;

    Abstract : The human genome, in common with all mammalian genomes, carries a high load of inheritable retroviral sequences. We have identified and characterized a novel family of these endogenous retroviruses and have named this family HERV-F as based on the primer binding sites of three members. READ MORE

  2. 2. Human Endogenous Retroviruses: Studies on Transcriptional Activity and Genetic Variability

    University dissertation from Department of Medical Microbiology, Lund University

    Author : Patrik Medstrand; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1996]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; virology; bacteriology; HERVs; Human endogenous retrovirus sequences; reverse transcriptase; Microbiology; differential RNA expression.; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : Endogenous retroviruses (ERVs) are believed to be remains of germ-line infections that have become fixed in the population. They are involved in pathophysiological conditions, in mechanisms leading to infection protection, and directly in the physiology of the organism by participating in the regulation of cellular gene expression.

  3. 3. Transcription, splicing and genetic structure within the human endogenous retroviral HERV-H family

    University dissertation from Department of Infectious Diseases and Medical Microbiology, Lund University

    Author : Mats Lindeskog; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Microbiology; immunosuppressive envelope protein; RNA splicing; Human endogenous retrovirus; transcription; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : Human endogenous retroviruses (HERVs) are remains of ancient retroviral infections of the germ line and constitute as much as 3 % of the human genome. HERVs are genetic elements that potentially may provide important biological functions by several different mechanisms. READ MORE

  4. 4. Endogenous Retroviral RNA Expression in Humans

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lijuan Hu; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : Microbiology; Human endogenous retrovirus HERV ; HERVE; HERVW; betaretrovirus; gammaretrovirus; RNA expression; real time PCR; endometrium; endometriosis; brain tissue; reproductive tissue; ovarian cancer; ovary; neuroblastoma cell line; Mikrobiologi;

    Abstract : Human endogenous retroviruses (HERVs) constitute about 8% of the human genome. There are around 4000 pol-containing retroviral integrations in the human genome, which makes it impractical to measure each of them separately. READ MORE

  5. 5. Human Endogenous Retroviruses: Expression and Evolutionary Relationships

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Marie-Louise Andersson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mikrobiologi; mycology; virology; bacteriology; Microbiology; bakteriologi; expression; transcription; reverse transcriptase; HERV; phylogeny; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : The human genome contains genetic elements which are more or less similar to infectious retroviruses. These are called human endogenous retroviruses (HERVs) and are thought to be remnants of infections in the primate lineage. READ MORE
