Description of this data

The present study investigating weak magnetic field at extremely low frequency on biological system. Our case study was on chick embryos development. Freshly fertilized chicken eggs exposed for 48 hours to magnetic field (1.0 µT peak-to-peak amplitude) post lying incubation. Following exposure, eggs incubated for an additional 9 days in the absence of magnetic field. The exposed embryos show developmental anomalies compared with sham–exposed controls. Histopathological features identified in the chick embryos using optical microscope. Electron microscopy used to study the distribution of naturally occurring apoptosis (or programmed cell death) in chick embryos. Moreover, levels of circulating cytokines (mainly IL-2 and INF-γ) investigated in the exposed and control embryos. Results reveal that exposure to magnetic field can induce irreversible developmental alterations.
