Abstract: Abstract This thesis presents theoretical studies of UV-B induced signaling pathways in plants using molecular dynamic methods combined with (TD)-DFT calculations. Ultraviolet B (UV-B) radiation is a component of sunlight covering wavelengths 280-300nm. Despite it being a minor component of sunlight, it has a major influence not only on formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) leading to oxidative stress, but also on regulation of plant growth and development. Albeit low levels of ROS produc... more
