Effect of magnetic field on the process of cell respiration in mitochondria of rats.


Exposure of rats to static magnetic field 1 hour daily for a period of 7 weeks (7 days a week) leading to disturbances of the respiration processes in the mitochondria of liver cells. The rate of respiration through NADH dehydrogenase, succinic dehydrogenase and cytochrome oxidase was dependent on both the duration and the intensity value of the field applied. The animals showed greater sensitivity to the action of a 0.008 T magnetic induction field than to that of 0.15 T. The observed changes were reversible after 3 months since the everyday exposure had been stopped.
