Mouse polyomavirus mediated effects on the infected cell membrane studied by dielectric spectroscopy

Biosci Rep. 1993 Oct;13(5):259-63. doi: 10.1007/BF01137962.


The effect of polyomavirus on the infected cell has been investigated by dielectric spectroscopy. This technique has a great potential in the study of the ion transport properties of the cell membrane. The results presented in this communication suggest a correlation between progression of the viral infection and dielectric features of the infected cell plasma membrane.
