cell fusion
Formation in vitro of a single hybrid cell from the coalescence of two cells of different species origin. In the hybrid cell, the donor nuclei may remain separate, or may fuse, but during subsequent cell divisions, a single spindle is formed so that each daughter cell has a single nucleus containing complete or partial sets of chromosomes from each parental line.
