Tyramine Functions Independently of Octopamine in the Caenorhabditis elegans Nervous System
Octopamine biosynthesis requires tyrosine decarboxylase to convert tyrosine into tyramine and tyramine beta-hydroxylase to convert tyramine into octopamine. We identified and characterized aExpand

Regulation of the Drosophila Protein Timeless Suggests a Mechanism for Resetting the Circadian Clock by Light
Circadian behavioral rhythms in Drosophila depend on the appropriate regulation of at least two genes, period (per) and timeless (tim). Previous studies demonstrated that levels of PER and TIM RNAExpand

A role for the proteasome in the light response of the timeless clock protein.
The cyclic expression of the period (PER) and timeless (TIM) proteins is critical for the molecular circadian feedback loop in Drosophila. The entrainment by light of the circadian clock is mediatedExpand

Rhythmic Expression of timeless: A Basis for Promoting Circadian Cycles in period Gene Autoregulation
The clock gene timeless (tim) is required for circadian rhythmicity in Drosophila. The accumulation of tim RNA followed a circadian rhythm, and the phase and period of the tim RNA rhythm wereExpand

Alterations of per RNA in Noncoding Regions Affect Periodicity of Circadian Behavioral Rhythms
Circadian rhythms in Drosophila depend on a molecular feedback loop that includes products of the period (per) and timeless (tim) genes. RNA and protein products of both genes cycle with a circadianExpand

Pharmacologically distinct sodium-dependentl-[3H]glutamate transport processes in rat brain
The transport of L-[3H]glutamate into crude synaptosomal membrane fractions prepared from cerebellum, brainstem, hippocampus, cortex, striatum, and midbrain was characterized. In all brain regions,Expand

Altered Entrainment and Feedback Loop Function Effected by a Mutant Period Protein
The period (per) and timeless (tim) genes encode interacting components of the circadian clock. Levels and phosphorylation states of both proteins cycle with a circadian rhythm, and the proteinsExpand
