Abstract
Addition of La3+ to human and chicken erythrocytes was shown to stimulate their aggregation. Incubation of the erythrocyte aggregates at 37.degree. C did not lead to cell fusion. At the same time incubation of erythrocyte aggregates with decreased ATP content in the presence of 40 .mu.M La3+ induced a pronounced cell fusion. The fusion was significantly enhanced at 43.degree. C.
