Abstract

Abstract Microwave radiation (2450 MHz CW) was tested for mutagenicity in Drosophila melanogaster. Embryos in water were exposed to the electromagnetic field with a mean specific absorption rate of 100 W/kg. A sensitive somatic test system was used, in which mutagenicity was measured as the frequency of somatic mutations for eye pigmentation. With the test system used, microwaves did not show any mutagenic activity.
