Abstract

Extremely low frequency (ELF) magnetic fields as essential ecological factor may induce specific responses in genetically different lines. The subject of this study was to investigate the impact of ELF magnetic field on fitness components and locomotor activity of five Drosophila subobscura isofemale (IF) lines. Each D. subobscura IF line, arbitrarily named: B16/1, B24/4, B39/1, B57/2 and B69/5, was maintained in five full-sib inbreeding generations. Their genetic structures were defined based on the mitochondrial DNA variability. Egg-first instar larvae and one-day-old flies were exposed to ELF magnetic field (50 Hz, 0.5 mT, 48 h) and thereafter, fitness components and locomotor activity of males and females in an open field test were observed for each selected IF line, respectively. Exposure of egg-first instar larvae to ELF magnetic field shortened developmental time, and did not affect viability and sex ratio of D. subobscura IF lines. Exposure of one-day-old males and females IF lines B16/1 and B24/4 to ELF magnetic field significantly decreased their locomotor activity and this effect lasted longer in females than males. These results indicate various responses of D. subobscura IF lines to the applied ELF magnetic field depending on their genetic background.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 19 August 2017.
All research outputs
#10,313,360
of 11,627,913 outputs
Outputs from International Journal of Radiation Biology
#1,022
of 1,088 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#223,048
of 264,128 outputs
Outputs of similar age from International Journal of Radiation Biology
#21
of 23 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 11,627,913 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,088 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.1. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 264,128 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 23 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
