Although micro- and millimeter waves become more important in our daily life, an unambiguous biophysical explanation for the interaction mechanism with biological matter is still lacking. At the molecular level, structural features such as conjugated molecules and metal ions in proteins could play an essential role in the interaction with non-ionizing electromagnetic (EM) waves. Moreover, transfer of charges in biochemical reactions could be disturbed significantly by these EM waves. Taking these aspects into account, the
enzymatic activity of succinate dehydrogenase was evaluated after exposure to low-intensity millimeter waves. The results showed a time-dependent reduction of the enzyme activity, which didn’t reverse after exposure.
