Two types of hybrids between cells with erythroid phenotype (Friend cells) and teratocarcinoma cells can be distinguished: cell hybrids with an erythroid phenotype, which release or can be induced to release large amounts of Friend spleen focus-forming virus (F-SFFV) on exposure to bromodeoxyuridine and cell hybrids with a teratocarcinoma phenotype, which do not release Friend virus and are not inducible for F-SFFV release. In this paper, we attempted to relate these differences to the… CONTINUE READING
