Drosophila cells and plant protoplasts were fused by polyethylene glycoldimethylsulfoxide treatment. DNA synthesis in plant and animal cells and in their heterokaryons were monitored by [3H]thymidine autoradiography. In appropriate media both the parental cells and the heterokaryons preserved their DNA synthetic activity. Division of the heterokaryons were also observed.
