Model 2450 MHz exposure to b-gal transgenic ("Muta") mice and analysis of mutation frequency

Pregnant Muta mice were exposed to 2450 MHz RF at 4.3 W/kg (whole bosy, 10 seconds on / 50 seconds off, for 16 hours/day during embryonic day 0 through 15. In this assay, the inserted B-gal gene is inactivated - mutations caused by the exposure agent are identified by excising the vector from genomic DNA, packaging in a vector, transfecting bacteria and counting blue colonies. At 10 weeks of age, histopathologic analysis of spleen, liver, brain, and testis tissue was performed and revealed mutagenic effects from RF exposure.
