Sample text

The correct limit of damaging effect is therefore probably closer to 310-305 than 320. The lower limit of terrestrial solar radiation is determined by the depth of the ozone layer 10 to 40 km above the surface of the earth, and by latitude and sun direction. It is important to note that both proteins and DNA begin absorption significantly at the same wavelength and that it is at this wavelength that UV cell damage starts, with increasing effect towards shorter wavelengths. Biological systems evidently have protective mechanisms to prevent damage from UV radiation in natural sunlight as DNA and protein absorption "tails" extend to 320 nm, this protective system must be given some attention.

The action spectra of photoreactivation show two different types of curves which, in many respects, are rather similar, as illustrated in Fig. 8. Wavelength, nm Fig. 8. The action spectrum of photoreactivation for survival of the blue-green alga Agmenellum (von Baalen, 1968) and for far UV-killing in the bacterium Escherichia coli. , 1970) Photoreactivation spans the spectral region 300 to 460-480 nm. During the process of photoreactivation the thymine dimers formed during UV radiation below 300 nm are separated and thymine monomers regenerated.

At any rate, when we manipulate with UV doses in the spectral region 320 to 290 nm we are touching a very sensitive biological system indeed and utmost care should be taken when doing so. Increasing UV doses may upset the positive balance which now evidently exists between UV damage and repair mechanisms in natural sunlight. The whole boplogical world, so dependent upon microorganisms, may, if doses increases, be in serious trouble. living on surface waters was considered. Many such examples of this can be cited.
