Abstract

SUMMARY: The effect of red (660 nm) and far-red (730 nm) light on the stability of the yeast to lethal u.v. radiation has been studied. Reactivation and protection were exhibited for 30 min after treatment with red light and were abolished by far-red exposure applied within this time period. The temperature dependence of the reactivation effect was also studied. The data obtained show that the properties of recovery and protection against u.v. exposure are associated with the phytochrome system of the yeast.
