A plant which acclimatizes with no exterior influence

Arabid UVR8 mutated or WTA team led by Roman Ulm has generated a transgenic plant which acclimatises constitutively, regardless of the level of UV-B. As described on November 25th, 2013 in PNAS, this plant displays a constantly active UV-B receptor, which endows it with a higher UV-B resistance, associated with increased flavonoid production.
