Membrane dynamics of intact cultured dystrophic muscle cells are studied during in vitro differentiation. A microscopic fluorescence relaxation approach with the capability to study small portions of a single cell is employed. Studies of the average rotational mobility of the fluorescent probe 1-anilinonapthalene-8-sulfonate by this technique reveal significant differences in the behavior of dystrophic and control muscle.
