The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified power frequency magnetic fields as a possible human carcinogen. Alteration in transcription programs is a fundamental feature of cancer. Here, using DNA array technology, we examined the transcriptional effects of 50 Hz magnetic fields on human breast cancer MCF-7 cells. It was found that expression of several oncogenes was significantly altered by magnetic-field exposure and that gene expression profilings were similar in MCF-7 cells exposed to magnetic fields at 1.2 μT and 100 μT for 1 week.
