Interaction of Poliovirus-Specific RNAs with HeLa Cells and E. coli

Conference paper
Part of the Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology / Ergebnisse der Mikrobiologie und Immunitätsforschung book series (CT MICROBIOLOGY, volume 62)


General aspects of nucleic acid uptake by mammalian cells have been the subject of several reviews during the last few years (Pagano, 1970; Bhargava and Shanmugam, 1971; Dubes, 1971; Ryser, 1967). These reviews covered methods used for the infection of cells by viral nucleic acids as well as interaction of mammalian cells with non-viral nucleic acids.
