Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Abstract

Photoreactivation is a process that generates repair of ultravioletradiation (UV) damage in micro-organisms. Repair involves the DNA photolyase enzyme, which uses energy provided by light of wavelengths between 300 and 450 nm to reverse many types of DNA damage. Most studies of photoreactivation have relied on irradiation with continuous-wave (CW) light. This study examines the repair of UV-induced damage using both CW light from a bank of fluorescent lamps in a light cabinet, and pulsed light provided by a xenon flashlamp.
