Title:
Transcriptional regulation of innate immunity – interplay of exogenous and endogenous retroviruses
Duration:
9/2/2019 to 11/1/2022
Abstract / short description:
About 8% of the human genome is of viral origin and represents genomic fossils of once-infectious retroviruses. Intriguingly, many of these endogenous retroviruses (ERVs) are activated upon infection with HIV and other viral pathogens. Within this project, we investigate the role of ERV-derived promoter and enhancer elements in regulating antiviral immune responses.
