Morphofunctional parameters of erythrocytes in blood of chickens at adaptation to different light status

Lyudmila K. Buslovskaya


Aim: The aim is to study the dynamics of morphofunctional parameters of erythrocytes in the process of chickens adapting to the changes in light status. Materials and Methods: Atomic force microscopy was used in the study to find out changes that were primarily related to the ability of cells to deform in various light conditions. Result and Discussion: This study revealed a reduction in the size of erythrocytes due to the depth and width of the paranuclear area, as well as a fall in the stiffness of cell membranes that indicate changes in contact and elastic properties of cellular structures, which provide oxygen transport by the blood and microcirculation.
