The biological effects of ultraviolet radiation (UV), such as DNA damage, mutagenesis, cellular aging, and carcinogenesis, are in part mediated by reactive oxygen species (ROS). The major intracellular ROS intermediate is hydrogen peroxide, which is synthesized from superoxide anion ((*)O(2)(-)) and further metabolized into the highly reactive hydroxyl radical. In this study, we examined the involvement of mitochondria in the UV-induced H(2)O(2) accumulation in a keratinocyte cell line HaCaT… CONTINUE READING
