In this study, we investigated whether exposure to 2450 MHz high-frequency electromagnetic fields (HFEMFs) could act as an environmental insult to evoke a stress response in A172 cells, using HSP70 and HSP27 as stress markers. The cells were exposed to a 2450 MHz HFEMF with a wide range of specific absorption rates (SARs: 5-200 W/kg) or sham conditions. Because exposure to 2450 MHz HFEMF at 50-200 W/kg SAR causes temperature increases in culture medium, appropriate heat control groups (38-44… CONTINUE READING
