Effect of Microwaves on Microtubule Structure and Function probed by Light and X-ray Scattering

" In this thesis we use light scattering to show that microwaves have a non-thermal functional effect on a protein complex called microtubules, which are biological nanotubes that stretch for several microns in length in eukaryotic cells. We also use X-ray scattering to measure whether or not microwaves cause a structural perturbation to microtubules in solution."

" ... X-ray scattering to probe for any structural perturbations (PAPER III) in microtubules under the influence of microwaves. These experiments were done at the Swiss Light Source (SLS) and we were able to measure reproducible difference signal in the SAXS region which was not due to thermal effects and the analysis of these results is ongoing.
