Abstract
An ultrastructural study was made of Sendai virus induced heterokaryons derived from Theileria parvainfected Iymphoblasts and Ehrlich ascites tumour cells. When fusion occurred, parasites were successfully integrated into the cytoplasm of the resulting heterokaryons where they appeared as morphologically normal macroschizonts. Homokaryon formation was also noted. This occurred frequently between Ehrlich ascites tumour cells and rarely with Iymphoblasts. A small proportion of heterokaryons contained altered forms of T parra showing nuclear components, vesicular structures and paired organelles similar to the microshizont stage of the parasite.
