Reliable techniques are required to evaluate the plausibility of proposed membrane fusion mechanisms. Here we have studied the kinetics of establishing the lipidic connection between hemagglutinin-expressing cells (HA-cells) and red blood cells (RBC) labeled with octadecylrhodamine, R18, using three different experimental approaches: (1) the most common… CONTINUE READING
