Effect of illumination in the presence of the sensitizers (hematopor-phyrin and merocyanine 540) on phytohemagglutinin-induced lymphocytes agglutination and lectin receptors capping was studied. The increase of velocity of both processes under non-lethal of illumination has been shown. A possible role of cytoskeletal proteins damage in the photomodification of cell receptor characteristics is discussed.
