Abstract : The effect of 1.7 GHz cw microwave radiation on rabbit serum proteins and blood chemistry were investigated. Intensities of 5 to 25 mW/sq cm for periods of up to two hours were employed in this study. Acrylamide gel electrophoresis was used to compare thermally treated serum proteins with microwave treated samples. Mechanisms for the alteration in drug-induced sleeping time in the Dutch rabbit exposed to 1.7 GHz microwave radiation are discussed. In vitro studies of the thermal denaturation of proteins are described. (Author)
