Magnetic fields after translation in Escherichia coli

Bioelectromagnetics. 1994;15(1):77-83. doi: 10.1002/bem.2250150111.


Quantitative two-dimensional gel electrophoresis of proteins in E. coli exposed for 60 min to weak, pulsed magnetic fields (1.5 mT peak) show that numerous proteins are both increased and decreased by a factor of 2 or more. An increase in the levels of two proteins, the a subunit of DNA-dependent RNA polymerase and NusA, was confirmed by Western blot analysis.
