Endogenous retroviruses (ERVs) are common in vertebrate genomes; a typical mammalian genome contains tens to hundreds of thousands of ERV elements. Most ERVs are evolutionarily old and have accumulated multiple mutations, playing important roles in physiology and disease processes. The Human Endogenous Retrovirus Database (hERV) is compiled from the human genome nucleotide sequences obtained from Human Genome Projects, and screens those sequences for hERVs, whilst continuously improving classification and characterization of retroviral families. It provides access to individual reconstructed HERV elements, their sequence, structure and features.

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Human Endogenous Retrovirus Database should match
this regular expression:
The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are
3 mappings to external registries for
|Registry Name||Metaprefix||External Prefix|
Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE
erv:THE1B is used to demonstrate the provides available for
erv. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic
logic beyond string formatting.
