Abstract:

The strategy of this program of research on the molecular mechanisms of electric field interactions with vertebrate cells was based on experiments designed to observe directly the effects of applied fields on living vertebrate cells in culture. Two directly observable electric field induced phenomena are focused on 1 Measurement of changes of the spatial distribution of local changes of transmembrane potential in perpendicular applied electric fields. 2 electrophoresis of cell surface proteins in tangential applied electric fields. To measure the map the local changes of transmembrane potential drops, we developed a high resolution optical imaging procedure.
