 Title    Changes in Epicuticular Flavonoids and Photosynthetic Pigments as a Plant Response to UV-B Radiation  
 Abstract    Treatment of Gnaphalium vira-vira plants with UV-B radiation caused changes in plant growth and in plant chemistry. The leaf surface contained two O-methylated flavones, araneol and 7-O-methylaraneol. HPLC analysis showed that 20 days of UV-B radiation increased the synthesis of 7-O-methylaraneol at the expense of araneol. Spectrophotometric analysis of the photosynthetic pigments showed that UV-B radiation also increases the pigment content in treated plants. A nother U V alteration is epidermal hair damage, as observed in SEM pictures of treated leaves. This combination o f physiological and phytochemical effects may be interpreted as a plant response to UV-B stress.
