Virus-Induced Cell Fusion

  • Patricia G. Spear


Attention is focused in this review on viral proteins that are known to mediate or influence virus-induced cell fusion. Because these proteins also mediate or influence entry of virus into cells, the virion-cell fusion required for this entry is discussed as well. The emphasis is on new information that has emerged since publication of an earlier review on these subjects (White et al., 1983). It was not the intention to provide comprehensive treatment of these subjects.
