Potential porcine endogenous retrovirus activation

Potential porcine endogenous retrovirus activation.

Porcine endogenous retrovirus (PERV) is a retrovirus found in the DNA of all pigs. The virus is normally in an inactive proviral form, but can potentially produce mature viral particles infectious for other species. PERV infection is a risk of pig to human transplants.
