System: animal (species/strain): rat/Sprague-Dawley
Exposure: 60 Hz, magnetic field, low frequency field, 50/60 Hz (AC)

DETAILS * Signal transduction of the melatonin receptor MT1 is disrupted in breast cancer cells by electromagnetic fields. med./biol.
Girgert R, Hanf V, Emons G, Grundker C (2010), Bioelectromagnetics 31 (3): 237 - 245
Aim: To study the effects of electromagnetic fields on the anti-proliferative effect of melatonin in breast cancer cell lines (melatonin suppresses the cell proliferation of breast cancer cells) expressing different amounts
of the melatonin receptor (MT1).
In order to elucidate the underlying mechanism of this action, the regulation of transcription of the breast cancer
susceptibility gene BRCA-1 and the expression of a number of other estrogen-regulated genes were analyzed in the presence of melatonin, either in sham exposed cells or in cells exposed to 1.2 µT of a 50 Hz electromagnetic field.
Endpoints: cell function (signal transduction of the melatonin receptor MT1 in breast cancer cells)
System: intact cell/cell culture (in vitro): MCF-7 (breast cancer cell line, parental cells and cells transfected with the MT1 gene (for the membrane-bound melatonin receptor))
Exposure: 50 Hz, magnetic field, 50/60 Hz (AC)
* Cryptochrome Mediates Light-Dependent Magnetosensitivity of Drosophila's Circadian Clock. med./biol.
Yoshii T, Ahmad M, Helfrich-Forster C (2009), PLoS Biol 7 (4): e86
Exposure: static magnetic field
DETAILS * Geomagnetic activity and human melatonin metabolite excretion. med./biol.
Burch JB, Reif JS, Yost MG (2008), Neurosci Lett 438 (1): 76 - 79
Aim: To evaluate the relationship between geomagnetic activity and overnight excretion of the melatonin metabolite, 6-hydroxymelatonin sulfate, and potential modifications by ambient light and 60 Hz MF exposure among male electric utility workers.
Endpoints: endocrine changes (
overnight melatonin metabolite excretion)
Exposure: geomagnetic field, 50/60 Hz (AC), occupational exposure
DETAILS * Effects of mobile phone electromagnetic fields at nonthermal SAR values on melatonin and body weight of Djungarian hamsters (Phodopus sungorus). med./biol.
Lerchl A, Kruger H, Niehaus M, Streckert JR, Bitz AK, Hansen V (2008), J Pineal Res 44 (3): 267 - 272
Aim: This in vivo study was performed to assess the effects of chronic radio frequency electromagnetic fields exposure on hamster body weight as an indicator of metabolic changes.
Endpoints: endocrine changes (metabolic effects (body weight, melatonin levels))
System: animal (species/strain): Djungarian hamster (Phodopus sungorus)
Exposure: 383 MHz - 1.8 GHz, mobile communication system, digital mobile phone, GSM, TETRA/TETRAPOL
DETAILS * Biomonitoring of estrogen and melatonin metabolites among women residing near radio and television broadcasting transmitters. med./biol.
Clark ML, Burch JB, Yost MG, Zhai Y, Bachand AM, Fitzpatrick CT, Ramaprasad J, Cragin LA, Reif JS (2007), J Occup Environ Med 49 (10): 1149 - 1156
Aim: To test the hypothesis that radiofrequency or 60 Hz exposures reduce melatonin and increase estrogen production, the authors measured a urinary metabolite of each hormone among women living in a community with increased radiofrequency power densities from nearby radio and TV broadcasting antennae.
Endpoints: endocrine changes (melatonin and estrogen production)
Exposure: 60 Hz - 3 GHz, Radio/TV transmitter, 50/60 Hz (AC), residential exposure

Aim: This study describes the results of a unique "natural experiment" of the operation and cessation of a broadcast transmitter with its short wave electromagnetic fields (6-22 MHz) on sleep quality and melatonin cycle in a general human population sample.
Endpoints: endocrine changes (melatonin cycle); sleep (sleep quality)
Exposure: 6.1 MHz - 21.8 MHz, radio frequency field, magnetic field
