The activity and expression of DNA repair/photoreactivation with the enzyme photolyase in the sea urchin Sterechinus neumayeri, McMurdo Sound
Entry ID: K068_2003_2004_NZ_1

Abstract: An important aspect of understanding the impact of increased UVR is assessing the ability of Antarctic species to repair DNA damaged through the process of photoreactiviation or photorepair. To repair DNA damage organisms have evolved the enzyme photolyase, a light dependent enzyme that requires UVR and visible irradiance to be catalytic. To quantify the importance of photorepair rates in ... View entire text
