> By screening 74 chordate genomes for endogenous lentiviruses using Pol
> sequences
> of exogenous lentiviruses as a reference, we identified a novel endogenous
> lentivirus in the genome of the ferret (Mustela putorius furo). Phylogenetic
> analysis suggested that the ferret endogenous lentivirus, denoted ELVmpf,
> diverged early in the evolution of the mammalian lentiviruses, although with a
> lack of resolution at key nodes. These data support the notion that
> lentiviruses
> have evolved on time-scales of millions of years.
