Significance of basolateral domain of polarized MDCK cells for Sendai virus-induced cell fusion

Abstract

Fusion (fusion from within) of polarized MDCK monolayer cells grown on porous membranes was examined after infection with Sendai viruses. Wild-type virus, that buds at the apical membrane domain, did not induce cell fusion even when the F glycoprotein expressed at the apical domain was activated with trypsin. On the other hand, a protease activation mutant… (More)
