The effect of a weak magnetic field (MF) on adenosine deaminase (ADA) and xanthine oxidase (XOD) activities have been investigated. A 50 Hz uniform MF was generated, and the magnitude of the field was kept constant at 5.8 mT. The changes in ADA activity over time were significantly different in and out of the MF; MF caused a steeper decline in ADA activity compared to the situation when no MF is present. In addition, MF caused a significant increase in XOD activity. There were no significant time-related changes for either enzyme in the absence of the MF. We suggest that a weak MF affects enzymatic systems.
