Abstract
THE PRODUCTION of interspecific heterokaryons by virus-induced cell fusion was first performed by Harris & Watkins (1965). Since that time the technique has been widely used in a variety of fields but its application in the field of parasitology has not so far been exploited. We have used the technique to effect inter-species transfer of an intra-cellular host specific parasite (Theileria pan'a) the causative organism of East Coast fever of cattle.
