Main outcome of study (acc. to author)

Up to 38 various proteins have statistically significantly altered their expression levels following exposure. Two of the affected proteins were determined to be isoforms of cytoskeletal vimentin. Changes in vimentin expression suggest that some form of cytoskeleton-related response might take place in cells exposed to the mobile phone irradiation.
