Enhancement of photorepair of ultraviolet-damage by preillumination with fluorescent light in cultured fish cells.


Fluorescent light (FL) illumination of RBCF-1 cells, derived from a goldfish, prior to 254 nm UV-irradiation enhanced their ability to photorepair. The cells were illuminated with FL for 1 h (29 W/M2) and incubated for 8 h in the dark before being irradiated with 10 J/m2 UV. The surviving fraction of FL-treated cells after UV-irradiation rose about 7-fold… (More)
