Model ELF exposure to rats for 4 months and analysis of chromosome aberrations using an HSV1 induced viral assay

Rats exposed to ELF magntic fields ("of industrial frequency") for 4 months and analyzed for chromosome aberrations using an HSV-1 viral assay. The assay (described in Res Virol 1997, 148(6):397-408) involves HSV1 induced single-stranded breaks in host-cell DNA early in the course of infection that lead to long-term effects on DNA supercoiling and organization of nuclear loops, comparable to DNA loop disorganization produced by UV radiation.
