To assess the ability of exposure to a 1.9 GHz pulse modulated radiofrequency field to affect gene expression in glioblastoma cells.
Positive controls were performed at 43°C (1 h).
|ばく露時間||continuous for 4 h|
|Duty cycle||33.3 %|
|Repetition frequency||50 Hz|
|チャンバの詳細||The temperature in the cell cultures was maintained at 37.0 ± 0.5°C by a mixture of prewarmed 95% air and 5% CO2.|
|ばく露装置の詳細||Cells were exposed in 10 ml of culture medium in 60-mm Petri dishes using a series of six circularly polarized cylindrical waveguides.|
|Sham exposure||A sham exposure was conducted.|
|Additional information||Negative and positive (heat shock) controls were run concurrently with each experiment.|
The data provided no evidence that non-thermal radiofrequency fields can affect gene expression in cultured U87MG cells in comparison to the control groups, whereas exposure to heat shock at 43°C up-regulated a number of typical stress-responsive genes in the positive control group.
