Characterization of heterokaryons between skeletal myoblasts and somatic cells formed by fusion with HVJ (Sendai virus); effects on myogenic differentiation.

Abstract

In skeletal myogenic differentiation, myoblasts fuse with myogenic cells spontaneously, but do not fuse with non-myogenic cells either in vivo or in vitro, suggesting that the fusion of myoblasts with non-myogenic cells is unsuitable for differentiation. To understand the inevitability of the fusion among myoblasts, we prepared heterokaryons in crosses… (More)
