Four different types of envelope of Sendai virus or subviral components, that is, infectious and non-infectious virions, reassembled envelope particles (REP), and Tween-ether-treated envelope fragments (TE), were studied comparatively for membrane interactions with chicken erythrocytes by freeze-fracture electron microscopy, specifically for membrane alteration by envelope fusion. The freeze-fracture replicas of the attachment of the four envelopes in the cold exhibited a common pattern of… CONTINUE READING
