Virologists - History of Virology
... described the first retrovirus a virus whose RNA genome was reverse transcribed into complementary DNA (cDNA), then integrated into the host's genome and expressed from that template ... The viral enzyme reverse transcriptase, which along with integrase is a distinguishing trait of retroviruses, was first described in 1970, independently by Howard Temin and David Baltimore ... Later it was found that reverse transcriptase is not specific to retroviruses retrotransposons which code for reverse transcriptase are abundant in the genomes of all eukaryotes ...

Famous quotes containing the word reverse:

    During the late war [the American Revolution] I had an infallible rule for deciding what [Great Britain] would do on every occasion. It was, to consider what they ought to do, and to take the reverse of that as what they would assuredly do, and I can say with truth that I was never deceived.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)
