Computer simulation of instantaneous time-dependent dipole moment and related nano-electromagnetic field of peptide network, or cluster, in vacuum and aquatic environment, reveal possibilities of molecular system control by means of external electric field. Protein water solution electrical conductivity measurements show some frequency resonances. Probably, revealed effects could be used in nano communication systems in RF-Microwave-THz frequency range.
