Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Cyclobutylpyrimidine dimer photolyase
EN
Involved in repair of UV radiation-induced DNA damage. Catalyzes the light-dependent monomerization (300-600 nm) of cyclobutylpyrimidine dimers (CPDs), which are formed between adjacent bases on the same DNA strand upon exposure to ultraviolet radiation. Required for plant survival in the presence of UV-B light.

Protein can therefore be used in conferring tolerance to UV-B induced abiotic stress caused by the formation of Cyclobutylpyrimidine dimers. CPDs are neutralised by CPD photolyase thus reducing the effect of UV-B radiation damage
