Possibility of the use of flow cytometry and spectrofluorimetry analysis for investigation mitochondria and plasma membrane polarization in myometrium cell suspension using potential-sensitive probe 3,3?-dihexyloxacarbocyanine [DiOC6(3)] has been demonstrated. The obtained results confirm the use of DiOC6(3) for studying the influence of effectors on transmembrane potentials of intact cell compartments.

Key words: transmembrane potential, potential-sensitive probe, flow cytometry, myometrium cell.
