The distribution of F-actin was examined by confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) in the wheat root-tip cells under the enhanced ultraviolet-B (10.08kJ·m-2·d-1) radiation treated with FITC-Phalloidin. The results showed that under the condition of the enhanced ultraviolet-B radiation, distribution of actin MFs were disordered in interphase cells; The arrays of the F-actin disintegrated into short fragments of random during prophase; Fluorescence intensity significantly decreased and bright fragments of microfilaments disappeared in Metaphase cells; Actin MFs disappeared in the phragmoplast regions when cells were in anaphase and telophase time. And some types of chromosome aberration were induced, including Chromosomal logging, chromosomal bridge and partition-bundle division.
