Table 1 Induction of CPDs (cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers) by different doses1 of UV-C [47] used in microarray studies compared to CPDs induced by sunlight [49]

From: Transcriptional responses to biologically relevant doses of UV-B radiation in the model archaeon, Halobacteriumsp. NRC-1

UV-C dose CPDs induced per kb Duration of UV dose Reference (Organism studied)
200 J/m2 1.67 1.05 min Baliga et al. (Halobacterium) [11]
    Gotz et al. (Sulfolobus) [25]
75 J/m2 0.63 not known Fröls et al. (Sulfolobus) [28]
70 J/m2 0.59 1.16 min McCready et al. (Halobacterium) [26]
40 J/m2 0.33 1 min Courcelle et al. (E. coli) [22]
30 J/m2 0.22 0.5 min McCready et al. (Halobacterium) [26]
Sunlight for 1 day 0.50 12 hours Wilhelm et al. (2DNA dosimeter) [29]
Sunlight for 1 day 1.00 12 hours Visser et al. (2DNA dosimeter) [30]
  1. 1 Irradiation schemes vary in each case.
  2. 2 In a DNA dosimeter, naked DNA is exposed to sunlight and the number of CPDs is measured.
