Abstract

The effects of photoreactivation (PR) rescue and dark repair on the survival of UV-irradiated embryos of the hermaphroditic fish (Rivulus ocellatus marmoratus) are reported. When UV-irradiated embryos were illuminated by photoreactivating light (PRL) from fluorescent lamps, survival at the hatching stage was markedly increased. The maximum recovery to UV damage was shown by embryos that were exposed to PRL for at least 6 h after UV irradiation. The effect of PRL decreased 30 min after UV irradiation and no PR rescue was detected beyond 96 h. Treatment with 2 mM caffeine for 48 h after UV irradiation increased the sensitivity of the embryos in the dark. The above results demonstrate that Rivulus embryos have an efficient PR system and a caffeine-sensitive odark capacity.
