Abstract : Protein solutions have been irradiated with pulse modulated radiofrequency energy in the frequency range 10-15MHz. Frequency-specific structural and functional changes reported by others following such exposures have not been found. No satisfactory explanation for this discrepancy has been determined. However, arguments are presented which suggest that the frequency specificity of effects reported previously is incompatible with the reported experimental parameters. (Author)
