Impact of ultraviolet-B (UV-B) and Cd, applied individually and in combination, measured in terms of oxygen-evolution, chlorophyll (Chl) and protein contents, lipid peroxidation, and enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants of Anabaena doliolum, revealed a greater oxidative damage induced by UV-B than by Cd. While superoxide dismutase (SOD) showed a greater stimulation by UV-B than Cd, the activities of catalase (CAT) and glutathione reductase (GR) declined after UV-B treatment. Cd treatment… CONTINUE READING
