Arabidopsis cryptochrome is responsive to Radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic fields

" Here we show that, in keeping with certain quantum physical hypotheses, a weak 7 MHz radiofrequency magnetic field significantly reduces the biological responsivity to blue light of the cryptochrome receptor cry1 in Arabidopsis seedlings. Using an in vivo phosphorylation assay that specifically detects activated cryptochrome, we demonstrate that RF exposure reduces conformational changes associated with biological activity. RF exposure furthermore alters cryptochrome-dependent plant growth responses and gene expression to a degree consistent with theoretical predictions." {Credits 1}

" Since cryptochromes are found in many organisms in the biological Kingdom including in humans, this study may lead to new biomedical applications developing RF signals to elicit desired cellular responses. Our results also may have more general implications for the capacity of living organisms to respond to man-made electromagnetic noise, by analogy with broad band RF16 which has been previously shown to disrupt orientation of birds." {Credits 1}
