 HIV & AIDS - The Isolation of HIV; Has it really been achieved? The case against
The basis of this exception is the fact that "one of the most striking features that distinguishes retroviruses from all other animal viruses is the presence in the chromosomes of normal uninfected cells, of genomes with those of infectious viruses".(83) In fact, a cell may contain the genome of many retroviruses.
One way which will suggest but will not prove that the cells acquired virus from the outside (exogenously acquired retrovirus, infectious retrovirus) and have not assembled a retrovirus from information already existing in normal cells (endogenous retrovirus) is to conduct experiments that use controls, that is, to run in parallel with test cultures/cocultures control cultures/cocultures.
This evidence was interpreted as proving that the "HIV DNA", the retrovirus, originated from the AIDS patients and in fact that these patient acquired it from the outside, that is, the retrovirus was exogenous.

 Diagram of a Retrovirus
In addition to RNA, retrovirus particles also contain the enzyme reverse transcriptase (or RTase), which causes synthesis of a complementary DNA molecule (cDNA) using virus RNA as a template.
When a retrovirus infects a cell, it injects its RNA into the cytoplasm of that cell along with the reverse transcriptase enzyme.

 SIMIAN RETROVIRUS
If infection were confined primarily to the disease population, this would provide strong evidence for a causative role of type D retrovirus in disease.
If, however, the rate of infection in the colony is high, as with cytomegalovirus, it would not be surprising to recover the virus with high frequency from immunodeficient animals.
Type D retrovirus could play an important role in the pathogenesis of the disease without being primarily responsible for the immunodeficiency.

There is considerable diversity between various types of retrovirus; the following is a generalized description of the particle.
All retrovirus genomes consist of two molecules of RNA, which are s/s, (+)sense and have 5' cap and 3' poly-(A) (equivalent to mRNA).
N.B. - some types of retrovirus, notably Lentiviruses, are capable of infecting cells by direct cell-to-cell contact, without the formation of infectious extracellular particles.

 Study Shows Link Between Retrovirus and Schizophrenia
A study released April 10, 2001, provides compelling evidence that there is a link between schizophrenia and a virus from the family HERV-W. This is a virus that is present in the environment and is often found in a person’s DNA.
While 29 percent of those with acute schizophrenia showed the most evidence of the activated retrovirus, just 7 percent of those with chronic schizophrenia showed signs of the activated retrovirus.
The retrovirus Yolken and his colleagues studied is called "endogenous retrovirus," and worked its way into the human genetic code millions of years ago, he says.
