Plant Responses to High Frequency Electromagnetic Fields

Figure 4

Local and systemic responses after HF-EMF exposure. (a) Systemic response after local exposure to HF-EMF in wild type. Local and distant responses after stimulation of leaf 1 (with the rest of the plant being protected from the EMF). The stimulated tissue (leaf 1) and distant one (terminal leaf) both displayed responses (accumulation of pin2 transcript). HF-EMF exposure: 5 V m−1, 10 min. (b) Impairment of distant response after exposure to HF-EMF in sitiens (ABA deficient) mutant. The stimulated tissue (leaf 1) displays the response to EMF exposure (accumulation of pin2 transcript), while the response in the distant tissue (terminal leaf) is impaired. HF-EMF exposure: 5 V m−1, 10 min. Reproduced from [6], with permission.
