(2) The Semliki Forest virus spike subunit E2, a membrane-spanning protein, was transported to the plasma membrane in BHK cells after its carboxy terminus, including the intramembranous and cytoplasmic portions, was replaced by respective fragments of either the vesicular stomatitis virus glycoprotein or the fowl plague virus hemagglutinin.
