Abstract : Low-power radiofrequency irradiation was investigated as a means of protein destruction in solution. It was found that in two different vitally important proteins, bovine gamma globulin and equine serum cholinesterase, structural alteration was observed. Before the biological significance of this phenomenon can be quantitatively established, more extensive experimental work is required. (Author)
