Electromagnetic field of extremely low frequency decreased adenylate kinase activity in retinal rod outer segment membranes.

Department of DIBISAA, University of Genoa, Genoa, Italy.


Adenylate kinase activity in rod outer segment membranes of bovine retina decreased of about 55% when exposed to an extremely low frequency electromagnetic field of 75 Hz and 250 microT. The effect was independent of the time of permanence in the field. Negligible effects of the field were found on the enzymatic activity of a soluble isoform of adenylate kinase or of rod outer segment membranes solubilized with Triton, suggesting the importance of the membrane in determining the conditions of the enzyme inactivation.
