Abstract

A simple method is described for promoting the fusion of mouse myeloma cells in suspension with polyethylene glycol (PEG 1000). By carefully controlling the concentration of PEG and the time of exposure of the cells, it was possible to obtain hybridization frequencies several-hundred-fold higher than those obtained with Sendai virus.
