A retrovirus is a type of RNA virus that inserts a copy of its genome into the DNA of a host cell that it invades, thus changing the genome of that cell.

Once inside the host cell's cytoplasm, the virus uses its own reverse transcriptase enzyme to produce DNA from its RNA genome, the reverse of the usual pattern, thus retro (backwards). The new DNA is then incorporated into the host cell Class: incertae sedis.

Wang-Shick Ryu, in Molecular Virology of Human Pathogenic Viruses, Abstract. Retroviruses (family Retroviridae) are enveloped (about nm in diameter), icosahedral viruses that possess a RNA of about 7–10 kb. Retroviruses are divided into two classes: simple retrovirus and complex retrovirus (ie, lentivirus or HIV).

This remarkable volume satisfies that need. Written by a group of the field's most distinguished investigators, rigorously edited to provide a seamless narrative, and elegantly designed for clarity and readability, this book is an instant classic that demands attention from scientists and physicians studying retroviruses and the disorders in Reviews: 1.

Retroviridae is a family of enveloped viruses that replicate in a host cell through the process of reverse transcription. The life cycle of retroviruses is arbitrarily divided into two distinct.

Retrovirus, any of a group of viruses that belong to the family Retroviridae and that characteristically carry their genetic blueprint in the form of ribonucleic acid (RNA). Retroviruses cause tumor growth and certain cancers in animals and are associated with slow infections of animals.

Two other major groups of retroviruses, the lentiviruses and the spuma­ viruses, are introduced in the present volume. Initially these groups, along with oncoviruses, were the three subfamilies in the Retroviridae.

This com­ plex virus family has now been reclassified. For other viruses there may be additional non-structural genes (e.g. vpx in human immunodeficiency virus 2, HIV-2). The tRNA primer is tRNA Lys The LTR is about nt long, of which the U3 region is nt, the R sequence is nt and the U5 region is 80 nt.

This second volume of the two-volume third edition of the Principles of Virology focuses on viral pathogenesis, control of virus infections, and virus evolution.
