Microwaves at 2.45 and 5.8 GHz are used for a power transmission technology. To evaluate the health risk of microwave, we investigated the effects of exposure to microwave at 2.45 GHz and specific absorption rate (SAR) of 1, 5, and 10 W/kg for 1, 4, and 24 h on gene expression in a normal human glial cell line, SVGp12, using DNA microarray. Under the experimental conditions used in this study, we found no evidence that exposure to microwave affected gene expression in SVGp12 cells.
