The F-40 cell line, a stable variant of LM fibroblasts selected for its resistance to polyethylene glycol (PEG)-induced fusion (Roos and Davidson: Somatic Cell and Molecular Genetics 6:381-391, 1980), has a decreased capacity to internalize fluid-phase markers and nonspecifically surface-bound macromolecules. It is not defective in exocytosis since, after a… CONTINUE READING
