We investigated the time course of circadian system development in zebrafish and the role of environmental light cycles in this process, using a rhythm in melatonin content of embryos and larvae as a marker of circadian function. When zebrafish were raised in a cycle of 14 h light and 10 h dark at 28.5 degrees C, nocturnal increases in melatonin content(More)
The ultraviolet radiation present in sunlight is the primary cause of nonmelanoma skin cancer and has been implicated in the development of cutaneous malignant melanoma. In addition, ultraviolet is immune suppressive and the suppression induced by ultraviolet radiation has been identified as a risk factor for skin cancer induction. Ultraviolet also(More)
The ultraviolet radiation present in sunlight is immune suppressive. Recently we showed that solar-simulated ultraviolet radiation (ultraviolet A + B; 295-400 nm), applied after immunization, suppressed immunologic memory and the elicitation of delayed-type hypersensitivity to the common opportunistic pathogen, Candida albicans. Further, we found that(More)
BACKGROUND The incidence of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma has increased over recent years. The exact etiology of lymphoma remains unknown. Ultraviolet light exposure has been associated with the development of internal lymphoid malignancies and some reports suggest that it may play a role in the development of lymphoma in humans. Here we describe the(More)
