The Effect of EMF Radiation Emitted by Mobile Phone to Insect Population using Drosophila melanogaster as a Model Organism

  title={The Effect of EMF Radiation Emitted by Mobile Phone to Insect Population using Drosophila melanogaster as a Model Organism},
  author={Ahmad Fauzi and Aloysius Duran Corebina},
Electromagnetic field (EMF) exposure has been reported produce a number of biological effects on biomolecules, cells, and up to the entire body of the organisms. Mobile phone devices, the most powerful EMF transmitters in the environment of human life, have become widely and increasingly used by the public. The exponential growth of mobile communications has been accompanied by a parallel increase in the density of EMF. Insects is one component of ecosystems that have various roles, both… Expand

To protect ecological system from electromagnetic radiation of mobile communication
A modular design is proposed to implement a cloud-based transmission power control mechanism that can be applied for BTS as well as Wi-Fi routers in cellular networks that will reduce the signal strength dynamically to maintain the safe limit of SAR. Expand
Learning the genetics concepts through project activities using Drosophila melanogaster: A qualitative descriptive study
The aim of this study was to describe the project research activities in Genetics course, especially the authentic-based research that utilize Drosophila melanogaster, to practice to be a real researcher. Expand


Effects of mobile phone radiation on reproduction and development in Drosophila melanogaster
The rapid induction of hsp70 within minutes, by a non‐thermal stress, together with identified components of signal transduction pathways, provide sensitive and reliable biomarkers that could serve as the basis for realistic mobile phone safety guidelines. Expand
Developmental changes in Drosophila melanogaster following exposure to alternating electromagnetic fields.
Investigation of the biological effects of alternating electromagnetic fields on developmental stages of Drosophila melanogaster eggs and the first, second and third instar larvae stages found that duration of exposure correlates with the increase in the number of abnormal flies. Expand
Effect of GSM 900-MHz Mobile Phone Radiation on the Reproductive Capacity of Drosophila melanogaster
The GSM field is found to affect both females and males and the results suggest that this field-radiation decreases the rate of cellular processes during gonad development in insects. Expand
Effect of 60 minutes exposure to electromagnetic field on fecundity, learning and memory, speed of movement and whole body protein of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster.
Investigation of the effect of four different electrical devices as source of electromagnetic field on fecundity, learning and memory function, speed of movement, in addition to the whole body proteins of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster showed that exposure to EMF has no significant effect on adult fecundities but alters learning andMemory function in Drosophile larvae.

The Effects of Microwave Frequency Electromagnetic Fields on the Fecundity of Drosophila melanogaster
It was found that in the 4 h and 5 h exposed groups, it was found a statistically significant decrease in mean fecundity as compared to the control (P 0.05). Expand
A review of the ecological effects of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF).
A lack of standardisation and a limited number of observations limit the possibility of generalising results from an organism to an ecosystem level, and it is proposed to conduct more repetitions of observations and explicitly use the available standards for reporting RF-EMF relevant physical parameters in both laboratory and field studies.

Drosophila melanogaster: the model organism
In the 20th century, there were two decades during which Drosophila melanogaster was the most significant model organism and each decade led to the establishment of new scientific disciplines, but the advent of molecular biology permits the investigation of organisms less amenable to genetic analysis.

It is concluded that differences in the concentration of 20-hydroxyecdysone in males and females are not responsible for the sexually dimorphic expression of the yolk protein genes, and that a source other than the ovaries provides hormone in females for this purpose. Expand
Drosophila-a versatile model in biology & medicine
The fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster is a versatile model organism that has been used in biomedical research for over a century to study a broad range of phenomena and has made key advances in understanding of regenerative biology. Expand
Insects in biodiversity conservation: some perspectives and directives
There should be strong focus on the preservation and conservation of as many, and as large as possible, pristine and near-pristine unique and typical landscapes as soon as possible. Expand
