The ongoing anthropogenically caused ozone depletion and climate change has increased the amount of biologically harmful UV-B radiation, which is detrimental to fish in embryonal stages. The effects of UV-B radiation on the levels and locations of DNA damage manifested as cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers (CPDs), heat shock protein 70 (HSP70) and p53 protein in newly hatched embryos of pike were examined. Pike larvae were exposed in the laboratory to current and enhanced doses of UV-B radiation. UV-B exposure caused the formation of CPDs in a fluence rate-dependent manner, and the CPDs were found deeper in the tissues with increasing fluence rates. UV-B radiation induced HSP70 in epidermis, and caused plausible p53 activation in the brain and epidermis of some individuals. Also at a fluence rate occurring in nature, the DNA damage in the brain and eyes of pike and changes in protein expression were followed by severe behavioral disorders, suggesting that neural molecular changes were associated with functional consequences. ...

Fluence rate or cumulative dose? : Vulnerability of larval northern pike (Esox lucius) to ultraviolet radiation Vehniäinen, Eeva-Riikka; Häkkinen, Jani; Oikari, Aimo (Wiley-Blackwell Publishing, Inc.; American Society for Photobiology, 2007)Newly hatched larvae of northern pike were exposed in the laboratory to four fluence rates of ultraviolet radiation (UVR; 290–400 nm) over three different time periods, resulting in total doses ranging from 3.0 ± 0.2 to ...
Exposure to environmental radionuclides associates with tissue-specific impacts on telomerase expression and telomere length Kesäniemi, Jenni; Lavrinienko, Anton; Tukalenko, Eugene; Boratyński, Zbyszek; Kivisaari, Kati; Mappes, Tapio; Milinevsky, Gennadi; Møller, Anders Pape; Mousseau, Timothy A.; Watts, Phillip (Nature Publishing Group, 2019)Telomeres, the protective structures at the ends of chromosomes, can be shortened when individuals are exposed to stress. In some species, the enzyme telomerase is expressed in adult somatic tissues, and potentially protects ...
Responses to ultraviolet radiation in larval pike, Esox lucius, of two origins and ages Vehniäinen, Eeva-Riikka; Häkkinen, Jani; Oikari, Aimo (2007)Ultraviolet radiation (UVR)-induced mortality and behavioural disorder were studied in larval northern pike of two origins and ages. Newly hatched larvae of two differently coloured populations and six-day-old larvae of ...
Transcriptional Upregulation of DNA Damage Response Genes in Bank Voles (Myodes glareolus) Inhabiting the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone Jernfors, Toni; Kesäniemi, Jenni; Lavrinienko, Anton; Mappes, Tapio; Milinevsky, Gennadi; Møller, Anders P.; Mousseau, Timothy A.; Tukalenko, Eugene; Watts, Phillip C. (Frontiers Media, 2018)Exposure to ionizing radiation (IR) from radionuclides released into the environment can damage DNA. An expected response to exposure to environmental radionuclides, therefore, is initiation of DNA damage response (DDR) ...
