Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The ultrastructural events of the interaction of Sendai virus (SV) with fetal mouse erythroid precursors, and SV induced fusion of erythroid precursors at different maturation stages are described. SV was shown to affect the erythroid nuclei causing interruption of the nuclear membrane, enlargement of the nucleolus and nuclear fusion. SV induced fusion also between dividing and non dividing cells.
