We have investigated the requirements for the induction of virus-mediated, low pH-induced cell -cell fusion and cell -virus fusion.  ...  None of these treatments resulted in the disassembly of the virus protein icosahedral shell that is a requisite for the process of virus membrane -cell membrane fusion.  ...  Acknowledgments This research has been supported by the NIAID and NCRR of NIH, the Department of Energy, the Robert A.  ...
