We investigated the effect of UV radiation on early signaling events in the response of young tomato plants (Lycopersicon esculentum) to wounding. Ultraviolet-C (< 280 nm) and UVB/UVA (280-390 nm) radiation both induced 48 kDa myelin basic protein kinase activity in leaves. The activation was associated with phosphorylation of tyrosine residues on the kinase, which is indicative of protein kinases of the mitogen-activated protein kinase family. Ultraviolet-C irradiation resulted in a strong… CONTINUE READING
