Significant progress has been made in our understanding of the neurogenetics of circadian clocks in fruit flies Drosophila melanogaster. Several pacemaker neurons and clock genes have now been identified and their roles in the cellular and molecular clockwork established. Some recent findings suggest that the basic architecture of the clock is(More)
The authors report the results of their study aimed at investigating the consequence of targeted ablation of ventral lateral neurons (LN(v)s--neurons regulating eclosion and locomotor activity rhythms) and genetic disruption of pigment-dispersing factor (PDF--an important output of circadian clocks) on the egg-laying rhythm of Drosophila melanogaster. The(More)
