How a Circadian Clock Adapts to Seasonal Decreases in Temperature and Day Length
We show that a thermosensitive splicing event in the 3' untranslated region of the mRNA from the period (per) gene plays an important role in how a circadian clock in Drosophila adapts to seasonallyExpand

Splicing of the period Gene 3′-Terminal Intron Is Regulated by Light, Circadian Clock Factors, and Phospholipase C
ABSTRACT The daily timing of circadian (≅24-h) controlled activity in many animals exhibits seasonal adjustments, responding to changes in photoperiod (day length) and temperature. In DrosophilaExpand

Differential Effects of Light and Heat on theDrosophila Circadian Clock Proteins PER and TIM
ABSTRACT Circadian (≅24-h) rhythms are governed by endogenous biochemical oscillators (clocks) that in a wide variety of organisms can be phase shifted (i.e., delayed or advanced) by brief exposureExpand

Drosophila melanogaster deficient in protein kinase A manifests behavior-specific arrhythmia but normal clock function.
Drosophila melanogaster bearing mutations in the DCO gene, which encodes the major catalytic subunit of cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA), displays arrhythmic locomotor activity strongly suggestingExpand

LRRTM3 promotes processing of amyloid-precursor protein by BACE1 and is a positional candidate gene for late-onset Alzheimer's disease
Rare familial forms of Alzheimer's disease (AD) are thought to be caused by elevated proteolytic production of the Aβ42 peptide from the β-amyloid-precursor protein (APP). Although the pathogenesisExpand

Clock-Gated Photic Stimulation of Timeless Expression at Cold Temperatures and Seasonal Adaptation in Drosophila
Numerous lines of evidence indicate that the initial photoresponse of the circadian clock in Drosophila melanogaster is the light-induced degradation of TIMELESS (TIM). This posttranslationalExpand
