RelevanceHERVK18.2 is a retroviral envelope protein. These 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. It is expressed at higher level in the thymus. It is expressed at lower level in peripheral blood lymphocytes.
