The spontaneous dielectric polarization of thin films of modified carbon nanotubes formed by Langmuir-Blodgett method has been established. The electrophysical investigations of the effect of oxidation-reduction potential of cell monolayer on spontaneous polarization in ordered arrays of modified multi-layer carbon nanotubes have been carried out. In was shown that the changing of cellular potential of C 6 glioma cells at menadione action is caused by calcium channels modification. The menadione afteraction consisting in formation of low-frequency calcium channels has been discovered.
Key words: cell functioning, calcium channel, menadione action, spontaneous polarization, Langmuir - Blodgett monolayer, carbon nanotube
