Tandem repeat sequences as markers to study microwave-DNA interaction

Presented at the National Seminar on Low-level Electromagnetic Field Phenomena in Biological Systems New Delhi, India, February, 1999

DNA sequence was measured in cells of the testis and brain of mice exposed to 2450-MHz microwaves (2 hrs daily for 10, 150, and 200 days at an SAR of 1.18 W/kg). DNA rearrangement was consistently observed in the DNA of exposed animals. The rearrangement can be attributed to some sort of non-specific stress created by low intensity microwave field.
