This study expolored the possible effect of short- and longer-term RF exposure (835.62 MHz FM or 847.74 MHz CDMA signals) on the activiation of the heat shock factor (HSF) in mammalian cells (mouse 10T1/2, hamster HA-1, rat NRK and human PEER) in culture.

The sensitivity and reproducibility of the assay for detection of HSF were confirmed and no evidence of RF-induced GSF activation ws found in any of the four cell lines tested.
