Long-term depletion of the stratospheric ozone layer contributes to an increase in terrestrial solar ultraviolet-B radiation. This has deleterious effects on living organisms, such as DNA damage. When exposed to elevated ultraviolet-B radiation (UV-B; 280–315 nm), plants display a wide variety of physiological and morphological responses characterized as acclimation and adaptation. Here we show, using special sun simulators, that elevated solar UV-B doses increase the frequency of somatic… Expand
UV-damage-mediated induction of homologous recombination in Arabidopsis is dependent on photosynthetically active radiation.
TLDR
The results suggest that UV-B-induced recombination processes may depend on energy supply derived from photosynthesis, and genetic deficiency for CPD-specific photoreactivation resulted in a drastic increase of recombination events, indicating that homologous recombination might be directly involved in eliminating CPD damage.

UVR2 ensures transgenerational genome stability under simulated natural UV-B in Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
It is shown that reversal of pyrimidine dimers by UVR2 photolyase is the major mechanism required for sustaining plant genome stability across generations under UV-B, and is important for ensuring low mutation rates in male and female cell lineages. Expand
Increased DNA repair in Arabidopsis plants overexpressing CPD photolyase
TLDR
It is shown that overexpression of cyclobutane pyrimidine dimer (CPD) photolyase (EC 4.1.99.3) in Arabidopsis thaliana strongly enhances the repair of CPDs and results in a moderate increase of biomass production under elevated UV-B. Expand
Plant responses to UV radiation and links to pathogen resistance.
TLDR
UV exposure also may be beneficial to plants by increasing cellular immunity to pathogens, and pathogen resistance can be enhanced by UV treatment, and recent experiments suggest DNA damage and its processing may have a role. Expand
Effects of prolonged UV-B exposure in plants
TLDR
The genetic effects of long-term UV-B exposure in plants are reviewed, which could adversely affect plant growth, development and morphology, especially the productivity of sensitive crop species. Expand
Components of nucleotide excision repair and DNA damage tolerance in Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
Experimental findings that link certain of these plant genes to nucleotide excision repair or damage tolerance of UV‐induced DNA damage are summarized. Expand
DNA Damage and Repair in Plants under Ultraviolet and Ionizing Radiations
TLDR
The current minireview introducesUV/IR and overviews UV/IR-mediated DNA damage products and critically discusses the biochemistry and genetics of major pathways responsible for the repair of UV/ IR-accrued DNA damage. Expand
Functional differentiation in UV-B-induced DNA damage and growth inhibition between highland and lowland ecotypes of two Arabidopsis species
TLDR
The results suggest that the response to UV stress was constitutive in highland ecotype but more inducible in lowland ecotypes, suggesting that local adaptation occurred in parallel under a constraint of tradeoff between growth and UV tolerance. Expand
Nitric oxide, nitrate reductase and UV-B tolerance.
TLDR
During the last decade enormous progress has been made in research on NO in plants, which has been shown to influence various physiological and developmental processes, and a link between nitrate reductase (NR)-mediated NO production and UV-B-induced flavonoid production is shown. Expand
An Arabidopsis mutant defective in UV-B light-mediated responses.
TLDR
There is evidence that ULI3 represents a specific component involved in UV-B-mediated signal transduction in higher plants, and is preferentially expressed in the outer cell layers in leaves, stems and flowers, but not in roots. Expand

UV-B damage amplified by transposons in maize
TLDR
Plant adaptive mechanisms of shielding and repair are critical to survival — for example, somatic tissues of maize and Arabidopsis defective in phenolic sunscreen pigments, incur increased DNA damage, and mutants defective in DNA repair are killed by UV-B. Expand

An Arabidopsis thaliana mutant (uvr2-1) that is defective in photorepair of cyclobutylpyrimidine dimers that provides evidence that CPD photolyase is required for plant survival in the presence of UV-B light. Expand

TLDR
It is found that in the spring of 1997, despite frequent cloud cover, the passages of the ozone hole over Tierra del Fuego caused concomitant increases in solar UV and that the enhanced ground-level UV led to significant increases in DNA damage in the native plant Gunnera magellanica. Expand
Higher plants and UV-B radiation: balancing damage, repair and acclimation

A future challenge is to elucidate how UV-B-exposed plants balance damage, repair, acclimation and adaptation responses in a photobiologically dynamic environment. Expand
DNA repair in pollen: a review
TLDR
It is suggested that the dehydrated state of mature, dehisched pollen and the protracted exposure of pollen to solar ultraviolet irradition could lead to considerable damage to pollen DNA, necessitate a DNA protection and repair capability in pollen fitness for competition and fertilization. Expand
Arabidopsis Mutants Lacking Phenolic Sunscreens Exhibit Enhanced Ultraviolet-B Injury and Oxidative Damage
TLDR
Results demonstrate that, in A. thaliana, hydroxycinnamates are more effective UV-B protectants than flavonoids, and indicate that A.Thaliana responds toUV-B as an oxidative stress, and sunscreen compounds reduce the oxidative damage caused by UV- B. Expand
