Replication of Primate Foamy Viruses in Natural and Experimental Hosts

  • Chapter

Part of the Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology book series (CT MICROBIOLOGY,volume 277)

Abstract

Foamy viruses (FVs) are common apathogenic retroviruses readily spread by horizontal transmission in nonhuman primate and some other mammalian host populations. Primate FV infections have been known for half a century, i.e., 15 years before the definition of retroviruses and another 15 years before the detection of primate immune deficiency viruses. The emerging interest in human retroviruses
