Acad. G. Bonchev", B1. 25 Using the fluorescent polarization (P) it is shown that the avian cell membranes change their fluidity in some circumstances like the mammalian cells. The cells from a liver tumor (myelocytoblastoma) were compared to normal leukocytes, macrophages and bone-marrow cells in turkeys. It turned out that the cancer cells really showed increased fluidity. The bone-marrow cells could not adsorb the fluorescent probe and the viscosity remained undistinguished.
