- A role for endogenous electric fields in wound healing
RPN Research 144, Carroll St, New Britain, CT 06053, USA
Curr Top Dev Biol 58:1-26. 2003
..However, these trials have utilized many different field strengths and polarities, so much work is needed to optimize this approach for the treatment of mammalian wounds...
- Endogenous electric fields in embryos during development, regeneration and wound healing
RPN Research, 144 Carroll St, New Britain, CT 06053, USA
Radiat Prot Dosimetry 106:375-83. 2003
..The presence of these endogenous fields would suggest that exposures to external electric fields should be limited to magnitudes of less than 0.1 V m(-1)...
- Power line frequency electromagnetic fields do not increase the rate of protein synthesis in human skin fibroblasts as previously reported
Department of Dermatology, University of California, Davis, California, USA
Bioelectromagnetics 24:465-72. 2003
..Again, we could find no significant effect of this field on rates of protein synthesis, even after 21 days of exposure...
- Nanosecond pulsed electric fields cause melanomas to self-destruct
Frank Reidy Research Center for Bioelectrics, Old Dominion University, Norfolk, VA, USA
Biochem Biophys Res Commun 343:351-60. 2006
..Each pulse deposits 0.2 J and 100 pulses increase the temperature of the treated region by only 3 degrees C, ten degrees lower than the minimum temperature for hyperthermia effects...
- Calcium channel blockers inhibit galvanotaxis in human keratinocytes
Donna R Trollinger
Section of Molecular and Cellular Biology, University of California, Davis 95616, USA
J Cell Physiol 193:1-9. 2002
..These findings suggest that calcium influx through Ca(2+) channels is required for directed migration of keratinocytes during galvanotaxis and that directional migration and migration speed are probably controlled by separate mechanisms...
- Power-line frequency electromagnetic fields do not induce changes in phosphorylation, localization, or expression of the 27-kilodalton heat shock protein in human keratinocytes
Department of Dermatology, University of California Davis, Davis, California, USA
Environ Health Perspect 111:281-8. 2003
..Therefore, in this study we did not detect any of a number of stress responses in human keratinocytes exposed to power-line frequency EMF...
- Human dermal fibroblasts do not exhibit directional migration on collagen I in direct-current electric fields of physiological strength
Amy L Sillman
Department of Dermatology, University of California, Davis, CA, USA
Exp Dermatol 12:396-402. 2003
..36 micro m/min. These studies suggest that dermal fibroblasts do not respond to the endogenous electric field of a wound, and use other migratory cues to direct their movement into the wound bed...
- Non-invasive measurement of bioelectric currents with a vibrating probe
School of Medical Sciences, University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen AB25 2ZD, Scotland, UK
Nat Protoc 2:661-9. 2007
..The basic, low-cost system we describe is readily adaptable to most laboratories interested in measuring physiological electric currents associated with wounds, developing embryos and other biological systems...
