It has been calculated that if rhodopsin molecules are associated in photoreceptor membranes they have such a high diamagnetic susceptibility anisotropy that it manifests itself macroscopically in the magnetic field in the order of magnitude of 0.1 kG (8 . 10(3) A/m), but the velocity of this orientation is very low. Thus the interaction with the magnetic field might be limited by kinetics. Malignant transformation is as a rule accompanied by changes in 1) the properties of membrane proteins, 2… CONTINUE READING
