Summary
Abstract: Photorepair rates in New Zealand temperate species of echinoderms show a much higher DNA photorepair than the Antarctic species Sterechinus neumayeri. To examine the reason for low rates of DNA photorepair in Sterechinus, the expression of the photorepair gene in a number of Antarctic and New Zealand starfish was compared. The Antarctic starfish Odontaster validus and Odontaster meridionalis were ... View entire text
