Transcriptional Modulation of Human Endogenous Retroviruses in Primary CD4+ T Cells Following Vorinostat Treatment

Front Immunol
PMCID: 5906534
PMID: 29706951
DOI: 10.3389/fimmu.2018.00603

[…] Sequence data in FASTA format for greater than 92,000 distinct HERV elements from the human genome were downloaded from the Endogenous Retrovirus Database (HERVd, 2012 release) (, ). This FASTA file of HERV sequence data was converted into a Bowtie index using the bowtie-build command () and also used to manually construct a gene transfer format (GTF) fi […]


Differential expression analysis of human endogenous retroviruses based on ENCODE RNA seq data

BMC Med Genomics
PMCID: 4632268
PMID: 26530187
DOI: 10.1186/s12920-015-0146-5

[…] We calculated the read coverage over the HERVd entries for every RNA-Seq experiment using the “featureCount” tool of the subread package []. For every annotated viral element it returns the number of reads mapped to it in every analyzed sequ […]
