|FUNCTION: Retroviral envelope proteins mediate receptor recognition and membrane fusion during early infection. Endogenous envelope proteins may have kept, lost or modified their original function during evolution. This envelope protein has superantigenic properties. FUNCTION: SU mediates receptor recognition. FUNCTION: TM anchors the envelope heterodimer to the viral membrane through one transmembrane domain. The other hydrophobic domain, called fusion peptide, mediates fusion of the viral membrane with the target cell membrane (By similarity). SUBUNIT: The surface (SU) and transmembrane (TM) proteins form a heterodimer. SU and TM are attached by noncovalent interactions or by a labile interchain disulfide bond (By similarity). TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Expressed at higher level in the thymus. Expressed at lower level in peripheral blood lymphocytes. DEVELOPMENTAL STAGE: High expression in thymocytes. Neither expressed nor inducible in mature T-cells. Inducible in CD2 negative peripheral blood lymphocytes. INDUCTION: Induced by type I interferons and by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). MISCELLANEOUS: Orthologs in Pan troglodytes and Gorilla gorilla. MISCELLANEOUS: Has a type 1 genome. The HERV-K(HML-2) family contains type 1 and type 2 genomes depending on the absence or presence of 292 nucleotides at the 5"-end of the env gene resulting in Env proteins of distinct sizes. Despite their overall retroviral envelope structure HERV-K(HML-2) type 1 envelope proteins lack a predictable signal sequence. Subgenomic RNA transcripts coding for full-length envelope proteins have been detected for both type of genomes. MISCELLANEOUS: Autoantibodies reactive to this envelope are detectable in sera from healthy donors and individuals with autoimmune diseases. MISCELLANEOUS: Intragenic, in the first intron of CD48 gene.|
