Effects of UV radiation on the lipids and proteins of bacteria studied by mid-infrared spectroscopy.

Abstract

Knowledge of the molecular effects of UV radiation (UVR) on bacteria can contribute to a better understanding of the environmental consequences of enhanced UV levels associated with global climate changes and will help to optimize UV-based disinfection strategies. In the present work, the effects of exposure to UVR in different spectral regions (UVC, 100… (More)
