ABSTRACT

INTRODUCTION

LTR: Long Terminal Repeat

LINE: Long Integrated nuclear element

SINE: Short Integrated nuclear element

HERV: Human Endogenous Retro-Virus

The human genome is estimated to consist of approximately 8% human endogenous retroviruses (HERVs) and related sequences. FPRL2 (fomyl peptide receptor-like 2) gene has a solitary LTR (long terminal repeat). The LTR is located between first exon and promoter region of the FPRL2 gene. The FPRL2 gene containing LTR element was expressed in various human tissues except fetal brain and cerebellum. The LTR element was detected in hominoid, Old World monkeys, and New World monkeys except for common marmoset, whereas LINE (long interspersed repetitive element) and SINE (short interspersed repetitive element) elements were detected in prosimian (ring-tailed lemur) and common marmoset. We also examined promoter activity of the LTR element in FPRL2 gene, and discussed its biological role. Taken together, the insertion of retroelements into primate genome could have different biological roles during primate evolution. .

Retrovirus

Retroelements have been subjected to many amplification and transposition events resulting in a widespread distribution of complete or partial retroviral sequences throughout the human genome. The human genome comprises approximately 8% of the human endogenous retroviruses (HERVs) and other long terminal repeat (LTR)–like elements . Most HERVs seem to have entered the genome between 10 and 50 million years ago, and they comprise over 200 distinct groups and subgroups . Expression of retroelements can influence the outcome of infections in different ways that can be either beneficial or detrimental to the host. A function of the multiple copy families, scattered throughout the genome, has been reported regulatory functions on the gene expression of nearby located genes . A small minority of such sequences has acquired a role in regulating gene expression, and some of these may be related to differences between individuals, and to expression of disease. .
