Biological processes occurring in living organisms involve a number of interactions between proteins and their targets such as other proteins, DNA regulatory segments or small molecules. Each of these processes involves an energy transfer between the interacting molecules and these molecular interactions are highly selective. This selectivity is defined within the protein primary structure. The physical nature of these interactions is not well understood as yet. However, there is much evidence that biological processes can be induced or modulated by light of particular characteristic frequencies, via changes of energy states of macromolecules, proteins in particular. Such frequency selective effects of light on biological processes of protein activation imply that protein activation involves energies of the same order and nature as the electromagnetic irradiation of light. These phenomena have been analyzed previously in terms of the resonant recognition model (RRM) [1,2] which proposes that protein activities (interactions) are based on resonant electromagnetic energy transfer in a range of infra-red (IR) and visible light. In this study we are interested to see if proteins or DNA molecules may be activated by much lower frequencies, particularly by the frequencies in the microwave range (109 to 1010 Hz).
