UV-B radiation induces changes in polyamine metabolism in the red seaweed Porphyra cinnamomea


Early investigations on the productivity of intertidal seaweeds found that, unlike some seaweeds, members of the genus Porphyra, a Rhodophyte, could tolerate physical stressors such as ultraviolet-B radiation (UV-B) both during immersion and when exposed to air. Increased stress tolerance was thought to be due to an unknown mechanism that operated at the… (More)
