Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified E B
Endogenous retroviruses contribute to the evolution of the host genome and can be associated with diseases in their hosts. Human endogenous retrovirus K (HERV-K) is related to mouse mammary tumor virus (MMTV) and is present in the genomes of catarrhines (humans, apes, and cercopithecoids (old world monkeys)). All humans have about 30 to 50 HERV-K proviruses in their germline DNA. Expression of HERV-K genes has been reported in several tissues including male germ cell tumors and normal placenta where budding viral particles can be detected.
