Hooker, March29, 1863 Sometimes my students and others have asked me: "what was ?rst in evo- tion - retroviruses or retrotransposons?" Since HowardTemin proposed that retrovirusesevolvedfromretrotransposons(Temin1980;Teminetal. 1995)the other alternative that retroviruses emerged ?rst and were the predecessors of LTR-retrotransposons has since been a controversial issue (Terzian et al. , this BOOK). While DNA-transposons could not have existed in an ancestral R- world by de?nition, sure enough, some arguments de?nitely point towards apre-DNAworldscenarioinwhichretroelementswerethedirectdescendants of the earliest replicators representing the emergence of life.First, these rep- cators likely catalyzed their own or other's replication cycles via the catalytic properties of RNA molecules. After translation had emerged some replicators possibly encoded an RNA polymerase ?rst.
