Evolution of UV-B regulation and protection in plants
Publikation/Tidskrift/Serie: Advances in Space Research
Plants have evolved under the influence of UV-B radiation and have acquired systems for monitoring it and investing appropriate resources for protection against it, i.e., filters, quenchers of radicals and reactive oxygen species, and repair systems. An hypothesis for how plants monitor radiation has been presented.
