Accumulation of Sendai virus glycoproteins in cell-cell contact regions and its role in cell fusion.

Abstract

Lateral motion of the viral envelope proteins in the target cell membrane was shown recently to be essential for cell fusion by Sendai virus (Henis, Y. I., Herman-Barhom, Y., Aroeti, B., and Gutman, O. (1989) J. Biol. Chem. 264, 17119-17125). To explore the mechanism that gives rise to this requirement, we have now investigated the distribution of Sendai… (More)
