Summary

The mechanical filtration coefficient (Lp) of the membrane of cultured glioma cells was determined from the rate of swelling of the cells. The swelling was induced by exposing the cells to distilled water. Assuming that cells swell in a symmetrical manner, Lp was 2.2 × 10−8 cm/s · mmHg, or 1.7 × 10−4 µm/s · cmH2O when calculated from changes of the cell diameter.
