The uvh6 mutant of Arabidopsis was previously isolated in a screen for increased sensitivity to ultraviolet (UV) radiation. uvh6 mutant plants were killed by incubation at 37 degrees C for 4 d, a treatment not lethal to wild-type plants. Furthermore, under permissive conditions, uvh6 plants were yellow-green with an approximately one-third lower chlorophyll(More)
A new genetic screening method has been developed to isolate Escherichia coli promoters which are components of the SOS regulon. Plasmids containing the regulatory regions of polB (dinA) and two new loci, dinG and dinH, were characterized. Galactokinase gene fusion experiments indicated that transcription of these genes is inducible by treatment with(More)
We have utilized the cellular differentiation gradient and photomorphogenic responses of the first leaf of 7-day-old barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) to examine the accumulation of mRNA and protein encoded by the ribulose-1,5-biphosphate carboxylase holoenzyme (rubisco) activase gene (rca). Previous studies have revealed a pattern of coordinate expression of(More)
A genetic screen for mutants of Arabidopsis that are hypersensitive to UV light was developed and used to isolate a new mutant designated uvh1. UV hypersensitivity in uvh1 was due to a single recessive trait that is probably located on chromosome 3. Although isolated as hypersensitive to an acute exposure to UV-C light, uvh1 was also hypersensitive to UV-B(More)
Five Arabidopsis mutants have been isolated on the basis of hypersensitivity of leaf tissue to UV light. For each mutant, the UV-hypersensitive phenotype (uvh) was inherited as a single recessive Mendelian trait. In addition, each uvh mutant represented a separate complementation group. Three of the mutations producing the UV hypersensitive phenotype have(More)
