When I was originally trained in the use of poly-d-lysine when coating
tissue culture plates and cover slips, I was told that UV light
depolymerized poly-d-lysine.  Is this true?  I cannot find any concrete
confirmation of this online, and I was wondering if it is really important
to not leave them under UV light in the hood.
