Membrane permeability to the non-electrolyte probes urea and thiourea was measured in a population of differentiating bone marrow precursor cells (Cicoria and Hempling, '80). The phenomenologic equations of Kedem and Katchalsky ('58) were applied. The population of cells, which can be separated by velocity sedimentation, was examined over the maturation range of 400 to 1,000 cubic micra. Several membrane properties were observed: 1) Solute permeability (omega RT) increased linearly as the cell… CONTINUE READING
