Evolution of C-type viral genes: inheritance of exogenously acquired viral genes

Raoul E. Benveniste & George J. Todaro

Viral Leukemia and Lymphoma Branch, National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland 20014

Genes related to the nucleic acid of an endogenous domestic cat C-type virus (RD114) are found in the cellular DNA of anthropoid primates while many members of the cat family Felidae lack these sequences. Endogenous viruses from primates are thus concluded to have infected and become part of the germ line of an evolutionary distant group, the ancestors of the domestic cat.
