Multiple infiltration and cross-species transmission of foamy viruses across Paleozoic to Cenozoic era
Foamy viruses (FVs) are complex retroviruses that can infect humans and other animals. In this study, by integrating transcriptomic and genomic data, we discovered 412 FVs from 6 lineages in amphibians, which significantly increased the known set of FVs in amphibians. Among these lineages, salamander FVs maintained a co-evolutionary pattern with their hosts that could be dated back to the Paleozoic era, while, on the contrary, frog FVs were much more likely acquired from cross-species (classdoi:10.1101/2020.12.18.423569 fatcat:znwmq3m37zbjdok6nhob5h2m6a
