Effect of millimeter waves on UV-induced recombination and mutagenesis in yeast
Published in: Bioelectrochem Bioenerg 1997; 43 (2): 227-232
Aim of study (acc. to author)
Exposures at 5 different frequencies between 61.02 and 61.42 GHz (61.02; 61.12; 61.22; 61.32; 61.42) it is not clearly stated how many experiments/samples were treated with which frequency:
Distance between exposed object and exposure source
samples at the bottom of a plastic
petri dish which was placed in a holder in front of MMW irradiatior.
Main outcome of study (acc. to author)
The results suggested that the
MMW irradiation did not alter the UV- induced mutagenesis, but could facilitate recombinagenic processes. The recombinagenic effects of MMV found in this study were much weaker than could produced by traditional chemical and radiation mutagens.
