Electromagnetic field (EMF) producing wire coils were described by Merritt et al, Rev. Sci. Instrum. 54 (7), 1983. Merritt coils produce large volume EMFs in which statistical numbers of biological experiments are performed. We build and use Merritt coils for cell/animal studies and are developing therapeutic EMF systems. Here we present models illustrating(More)
Malonaldehyde formed by lipid oxidation is regarded as a main crosslinker in the formation of natural age pigment. To elucidate the mechanism of pigment formation the reaction of malonaldehyde with biomembranes using fluorescence spectroscopy has been studied. Rat liver mitochondrial ghosts or bovine serum albumin were reacted with malonaldehyde. In both(More)
Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) was isolated from liver mitochondria of rats between 2 and 24 months of age. The mtDNA was purified by cesium chloride--ethidium bromide isopycnic density gradient centrifugation. In the gradients, in addition to the two expected bands of ethidium--DNA complex, there was observed a third, more dense band (d = 1.69 g/cm3). This(More)
INTRODUCTION The use of magnetic fields to treat disease has intrigued mankind since the time of the ancient Greeks. More recently it has been shown that electromagnetic field (EMF) treatment aids bone healing, and repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) appears to be beneficial in treating schizophrenia and depression. Since external EMFs(More)
