BSC-1 monkey kidney cells were enucleated by two cycles of centrifugation in the presence of cytochalasin B. The resulting populations contained 99.5 percent enucleated cells. After infection, newly synthesized poliovirus was recovered from the enucleated populations. Final virus yield per enucleated cell was about one-fifth the yield per infected untreated cell.
