Solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation is an important risk factor in skin carcinogenesis. This has been attributed mainly to the UVB waveband because the high-energetic photons are capable of interacting with DNA and inducing DNA damage. Recently, UVA light has also gained increasing interest in relation to DNA alteration. Although UVA photons are less energetic than UVB, they comprise a major fraction of sunlight UV radiation and penetrate deep into the skin. The study was carried out to compare… 
Effects of UV radiation on DNA: Review
TLDR
It was found that UVA photooxidation damage mostly involves the guanine residues of cellular DNA as the result of singlet oxygen generation by still unknown endogenous photosensitizers.
Ultraviolet B (UVB) Irradiation-Induced Apoptosis in Various Cell Lineages in Vitro
TLDR
It is demonstrated that UVB radiation appears to be an ideal tool to study the apoptotic behavior in various cell models by using ultrastructural, molecular and cytofluorimetric techniques.
The effect of UVA irradiation on the DNA damage response in a human keratinocyte cell line
TLDR
The rate at which damage signals are released from irradiated cells decreased over time in a dose-dependent manner, suggesting that the rate of DNA damage surveillance and repair pathways play an important role in protecting skin cells against the carcinogenic effects of ultraviolet radiation.
Differential modulation of inflammatory markers in plasma and skin after single exposures to UVA or UVB radiation in vivo.
TLDR
UVA and UVB light affected several inflammatory markers and changes in plasma parameters did not correlate with those in skin, thus evaluation of plasma samples cannot be replaced by determination in skin specimens and vice versa.
Genotoxic changes in peripheral lymphocytes after therapeutic exposure to crude coal tar and ultraviolet radiation.
TLDR
The elevated levels of the DNA-DSBs and the chromosomal aberrations in the peripheral lymphocytes indicated a genotoxic hazard, however, the elevated level of the chromosome abnormalities was below the upper level ofThe reference range for healthy Czech adults.
Beyond UV radiation: A skin under challenge
TLDR
New molecular mechanisms linking sun and environmental factors to skin ageing have been identified: IR affects mitochondrial integrity and specific heat receptors also mediate some of its effects, tryptophan is a chromophore for UVB, and the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) is activated by light and xenobiotics to alter skin physiology.

Genotoxic effect of simultaneous therapeutic exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and UV radiation
TLDR
Comparing four GT variants in terms of efficacy and acceptable genotoxic hazard found that a combination of 4% or 5% of CCT and UVA and UVB seems to be acceptable (variants G2 and G4).

Acute exposure to solar simulated ultraviolet radiation affects oxidative stress-related biomarkers in skin, liver and blood of hairless mice.
TLDR
Examination of the acute effects of UVA and UVB wavebands on hairless mice found changes in oxidative stress-related parameters, particularly activity of catalase and superoxide dismutase and level of GSH and lipid peroxidation products, were found in skin, erythrocytes and liver.
Cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers are predominant DNA lesions in whole human skin exposed to UVA radiation
TLDR
It is shown that human skin efficiently protects against UVB-induced DNA lesions, whereas very weak protection is afforded against UVA, which emphasize the likely role played by the UVA- induced DNA damage in skin carcinogenesis and should have consequences for photoprotection strategies.
Sunlight and carcinogenesis: Expression of p53 and pyrimidine dimers in human skin following UVA I, UVA I + II and solar simulating radiations
TLDR
The results suggest that DNA damage assessed in vivo<0R> by immunohistochemistry could provide a very sensitive endpoint for determining the efficacy of protective measures, such as sunscreens or protective clothing, against both UVB‐ and UVA‐induced damage in human skin.
UVA radiation causes DNA strand breaks, chromosomal aberrations and tumorigenic transformation in HaCaT skin keratinocytes
TLDR
It is reported that different UVA exposure regime caused tumorigenic conversion (tumors in nude mice) of the HaCaT skin keratinocytes, and UVA may likewise contribute to the complex karyotype characteristic for human skin carcinomas.
Melanin acts as a potent UVB photosensitizer to cause an atypical mode of cell death in murine skin.
TLDR
UV-irradiated melanin, particularly pheomelanin, photosensitizes adjacent cells to caspase-3 independent apoptosis, and this occurs at a frequency greater than the apoptosis induced by direct DNA absorption of UV.
No formation of DNA double-strand breaks and no activation of recombination repair with UVA.
TLDR
Activation of the recombination repair pathway by solar available doses of UVA is studied and it is found that, unlike ionizing radiation or UVB, UVA does not activate the Fanconi anemia/BRCA DNA damage response pathway or the "recombinase" RAD51 in primary skin fibroblasts, suggesting that DNA DSBs are not formed by UVA.
γH2AX, an Accurate Marker That Analyzes UV Genotoxic Effects on Human Keratinocytes and on Human Skin
TLDR
The results indicate that γH2AX constitutes a highly sensitive marker relevant for studying subapoptotic doses as well as proap optotic doses of UVB in human skin.
Time course for early adaptive responses to ultraviolet B light in the epidermis of SKH-1 mice.
TLDR
Hairless SKH-1 mice were exposed once to UVB light, and mechanistically important early adaptive responses in the epidermis were evaluated by immunohistochemical and morphological methods, suggesting a possible role of MSH2 in the repair of UVB-induced DNA damage.
Oxidative Stress-Related Markers and Langerhans Cells in a Hairless Rat Model Exposed to UV Radiation
TLDR
The hairless rat appears to be a useful model for studying the oxidative stress-related mechanisms after UV radiation, which are involved in the loss of the immune capacity mediated by Langerhans cells, even at suberythemal doses.
