Bibliographic description (Ukraine): Effects of microwaves on the puffing pattern of D. melanogaster / L. A. Shakina, V. N. Pasiuga, O. M. Dumin, Y. G. Shckorbatov // Central European Journal of Biology. - 2011. - Vol. 6. - No 4. - P. 524-530.
Abstract: The influence of electromagnetic field exposure on puffing pattern of salivary gland polythene chromosomes, viability and fertility of Drosophila melanogaster of the wild type Canton-S line was studied. Experimental conditions: Electromagnetic field characteristics: frequency – 36.64 GHz, power density – 0.4 W/m2, exposure time -10 seconds. Electromagnetic field exposure was conducted on the egg stage. Results: in larvae developed from the exposed eggs 3 of 8 chromosomal puffs tested (71CE, 82EF, and 83E) had significantly smaller dimensions than these in control at the prepupal stage. Viability of Drosophila estimated by the number of adult flies hatched from exposed eggs decreased, while the number of dominant lethal mutations increased. Conclusion: the exposure to a low-level microwave irradiation suppressed puffing activity at ecdysone-inducible loci of Drosophila polythene chromosomes, increased frequency of dominant lethal mutations and decreased Drosophila viability but did not influence Drosophila fertility.
