Protein Information
Synonyms ERVFRDE1
Function This endogenous retroviral envelope protein has retained its original fusogenic properties and participates in trophoblast fusion and the formation of a syncytium during placenta morphogenesis. The interaction with MFSD2A is apparently important for this process (PubMed:18988732).
Cellular Location Virion.
Tissue Location Expressed at higher level in placenta. Expressed at lower level in adrenal, bone marrow, brain, breast, colon, kidney, lung, ovary, peripheral blood lymphocytes, prostate, skin, spleen, testis, thymus, thyroid, trachea

Human endogenous retroviruses (HERVs) make upapproximately 8% of the human genome. Although most HERVs arenonfunctional, the HERV-W (ERVWE1; MIM 604659) and HERV-FRDenvelope (env) proteins can induce cell-cell fusion when expressedin cells possessing appropriate receptors (Blaise et al., 2003[PubMed 14557543]).
