Abstract

Pretreatment of spores of the blue-green alga Anabaena doliolum with caffeine is antagonistic to UV lethality and posttreatment with caffeine is synergistic to UV lethality and mutagenicity. The results of photoreactivation experiments suggest that photoreactivation is independent of photosynthesis in blue-green algae.
