We have measured the induction and removal of UV-induced cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers from defined, DNA sequences in brains isolated from wild-type Drosophila melanogaster third instar larvae. Brains were exposed to a single dose of 500 J/m2 UVB and kept in the dark for up to 48 h. Within 48 h after irradiation, 50% of the dimers are removed from the… CONTINUE READING
