Tolerance of an Albino Fish to Ultraviolet-B Radiation
Entry ID: usgs_brd_cerc_d_albino_fish

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Albino and pigmented medaka Oryzias latipes was exposed to simulated solar
ultraviolet-B (UVB) radiation to determine if albino medaka were less tolerant
of UVB radiation than medaka pigmented with melanin. There was no difference in
the number of albino and pigmented medaka that died during the exposure period.
Spectrophotometric analyses of the outer dorsal skin layers from albino and
pigmented ... View entire text

Purpose: The data was collected in order to determine if albino medaka were less
tolerant of radiation than were pigmented medaka. The dorsal skin of unexposed
albino and pigmented medaka was examined for the presence of a non-melanin
photoprotective substance.
