Solar Ultraviolet Radiation-induced Dna Damage and Protection / Repair Strategies in Cyanobacteria

Abstract

Ultraviolet radiation (UVR) coming from the Sun is an ever-present stress for living organisms including cyanobacteria that damages several biological processes either directly or indirectly through the formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS). DNA is one of most prominent target for UVR. A number of mutagenic and cytotoxic DNA lesions such as cyclobutane… (More)
