Paper Abstract

Oscillating polar entities, such as protein molecules embedded in the cell's membrane or microtubules in the cell's interior are, as theoretically predicted and empirically demonstrated, sources of electromagnetic fields with frequencies ranging from far infrared to the MHz domain. The preliminary results obtained in our laboratory suggest connection of the characteristics of observed electromagnetic signals with the phases of the mitotic cycle. Such techniques, if adequately developed, could form a basis of new diagnostic methods in cytology. The present contribution examines the influence of temperature changes (within the physiologically acceptable limits) on properties of the oscillator ensembles, in particular on dependences of the occupation numbers versus the energy pumping rate.
