Genetic analyses of Gnaphalium's DNA showed a high degree of polymorphism in UV-B irradiated plants when compared to controls. Among the five tested primers the four ISSR primers selected for this analysis generated a total of 189 fragments. A high proportion of polymorphic bands ranging from 70% to 28% were found using these ISSR markers. Nei and Li similarity indexes [1] were used to evaluate genetic divergence among plants. The dendrograms obtained using these markers efficiently separate… Expand
The effects of UV-B radiation on genetic and biochemical changes of Pelargonium graveolens L′Her
Results indicated that by increasing the UV-B radiation intensity, total phenols, flavonoids and anthocyanin contents, Phenylalanine ammonia lyase activity and antioxidant capacity were increased and biochemical changes in different intensities were in line with genetic variations. Expand
Genetic diversity of the genus Gnaphalium in China assayed using random amplified polymorphic DNA analysis
Analysis of genetic diversity and affinity relationships among five species and eight populations of the Genus Gnaphalium from the Jiangsu and Zhejiang Provinces of China showed that eight samples could be classified into three types, which is in agreement with traditional morphological classification.

Morphological, biochemical and physiological responses of Indian cress (Tropaeolum majus) to elevated UV-B radiation
Enhanced UV-B radiation induced increased synthesis of total phenolic compounds in leaves, but not in flowers, which may have an important negative implication for success of this species in elevated UV- B radiation environments. Expand
Adaptation strategy of barley plants to UV-B radiation.
Results obtained in the research suggest that UV-irradiation can cause genomic instability of barley plants and pre-treatments used in the experiment may lead to plant acclimation and adaptation to UV-B radiation. Expand
Proteomic Changes in Urediospores of Puccinia striiformis f . spp . tritici After UV-B Radiation
Virulence variation in Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici (Pst) that causes wheat stripe rust is the most important reason for the resistance breakdown of existing resistant wheat cultivars. ToExpand
Examining the growth and performance of the effect of UV-B radiation on United Arab Emirates Date Palm Tree (Phoenix dactylifera)
The stratospheric ozone depletion and elevated solar UV-B radiation have a negative effect on living life forms. UV radiation is one of the unsafe components that cause hindrance to both flora andExpand


The results suggest that, in general, UV-B radiation caused oxidative damage, however, plants have evolved complex mechanisms to scavenge the active oxygen species and thereby protect the cellular membrane, pigment and organelle. Expand
Changes in Epicuticular Flavonoids and Photosynthetic Pigments as a Plant Response to UV-B Radiation
Spectrophotometric analysis of the photosynthetic pigments showed that UV-B radiation also increases the pigment content in treated plants, and this combination of physiological and phytochemical effects may be interpreted as a plant response toUV-B stress. Expand
Increases in surface flavonols and photosynthetic pigments in Gnaphalium luteo-album in response to UV-B radiation
The results support the view that surface flavonols are produced by plants as a protective device to shield the leaf from damage by UV-B radiation. Expand
Characterisation of genetic variation between Vitis vinifera cultivars from central Chile using RAPD and Inter Simple Sequence Repeat markers
DNA fingerprints generated by Randomly Amplified Polymorphic DNA (RAPD) and Inter Simple Sequence Repeat Polymerase Chain Reaction (ISSR-PCR) analyses indicate that French and Chilean vines grown for Merlot production represent different genotypes. Expand
PCR analysis of oilseed rape cultivars (Brassica napus L. ssp. oleifera) using 5′ -anchored simple sequence repeat (SSR) primers
It is concluded that anchored SSR-PCR analysis is a highly informative and reproducible method for fingerprinting oilseed rape populations, but that intra-cultivar variation should be investigated before using banding profiles from pooled samples for the identification of individuals. Expand
Variation in the quality and quantity of flavonoids in the leaves of coastal and inland Campanula punctata
Weak correlations between UV-B intensity and flavonoid accumulation under the natural habitat conditions suggest that various micro-environmental factors may influence the production of Flavonoids, and that the plants may acquire adaptive traits other than increasing flavonoids in order to inhabit the coastal environment.

Growth and physiological responses of an invasive alien species, Silene noctiflora, during two developmental stages to four levels of ultraviolet-B radiation
Overall, S. noctiflora plants were damaged by a four-fold increase of UVB radiation, as was apparent from reduced total seed yield, and this results mean that this plant may remain an invasive species under increasedUVB radiation. Expand
Ambient UV-B radiation decreases photosynthesis in high arctic Vaccinium uliginosum.
A substantial effect on photosynthesis clearly indicates that V. uliginosum is negatively affected by the current level of UV-B, and not only theUV-B effects on PSII may be responsible for some of the observed reduction of photosynthesis but also the effects on other parts of the photosynthetic machinery, e.g. the Calvin cycle, might be important.

Effects of a PAL inhibitor on phenolic accumulation and UV-B tolerance in Spirodela intermedia (Koch.).
Ultraviolet epifluorescence microscopy and UV-Vis spectroscopy of methanolic extracts confirmed the dose-dependent inhibition of secondary phenolic synthesis with the near total elimination of secondaryphenolic accumulation at the 10 microM level, providing direct evidence of the working hypothesis that phenols function to screen UV radiation from reaching photosynthetic tissues or damaging other sensitive tissues.

Effects of ultraviolet–B irradiances on soybean
Substantial interactions between ultraviolet-B and photosynthetically active radiation indicate a need for the measurement of longer wavelength radiation when evaluating the effects of ultraviolet- B radiation on plant growth in natural conditions. Expand
