Techniques for Monitoring Cell Fusion: The Synthesis and Use of Fluorescent Vital Probes (R18, F18)
The ability to directly measure membrane fusion is useful both in the study of the fusion process itself and in experiments involving membrane fusion, such as the production of heterokaryons, liposome-cell interactions, and viral envelope-cell interactions.
