Diurnal oscillations of gene expression controlled by the circadian clock underlie rhythmic physiology across most living organisms. Although such rhythms have been extensively studied at the level of transcription and mRNA accumulation, little is known about the accumulation patterns of proteins. Here, we quantified temporal profiles in the murine hepatic(More)
Biological rhythms play a fundamental role in the physiology and behavior of most living organisms. Rhythmic circadian expression of clock-controlled genes is orchestrated by a molecular clock that relies on interconnected negative feedback loops of transcription regulators. Here we show that the circadian clock exerts its function also through the(More)
Diurnal oscillations of gene expression are a hallmark of rhythmic physiology across most living organisms. Such oscillations are controlled by the interplay between the circadian clock and feeding rhythms. Although rhythmic mRNA accumulation has been extensively studied, comparatively less is known about their transcription and translation. Here, we(More)
In human cortex and hippocampus area, [3H]5-HT (5 nM) labels 5-HT1A, 5-HT1D and 5-HT1E sites. After masking 5-HT1A receptors by 0.1 microM 8-OH-DPAT, the binding displaced by 0.1 microM 5-CT presumably represented 5-HT1D sites and the remaining binding 5-HT1E sites. In frontal cortex, 5-HT1A receptors represented the main binding in layers II and VI and a(More)
Diurnal oscillations of gene expression controlled by the circadian clock and its connected feeding rhythm enable organisms to coordinate their physiologies with daily environmental cycles. While available techniques yielded crucial insights into regulation at the transcriptional level, much less is known about temporally controlled functions within the(More)
