Effects of ultra-violet light on the survival and nuclear division of a Dinoflagellate


Irradiation ofProrocentrum micans with ultra violet light gave rise to the normal exponential survival-dose relationship. The number of cells able to engage in nuclear division also decreased with increase of dose. Some chromosome breaks and exchanges giving rise to anaphase bridges were observed and a morphological mutant (cell form) was discovered.
