A number of cyclopropane fatty acid esters which promote the lateral mobility of fluorescent antibody-labeled antigenic sites through lymphocyte membranes (measured by rate and extent of cap formation) are described. The effect is dependent on molecular structure and dose; the compounds are termed membrane mobility agents.
