Application of fluorescence photobleaching recovery to assess complex formation between the two envelope proteins of Sendai virus in membranes of fused human erythrocytes.

Fusion of human erythrocytes by Sendai virions is accompanied by lateral mobilization of the viral envelope proteins (F, the fusion protein, and HN, the hemagglutinin/neuraminidase protein) in the target cell membrane; the dynamic parameters characterizing the lateral diffusion of F and HN in the fused cell membrane are identical [Henis, Y. I., & Gutman, O… CONTINUE READING
