The circadian system allows plants to coordinate metabolic and physiological functions with predictable environmental variables such as dusk and dawn. This endogenous oscillator is comprised of biochemical and transcriptional rhythms that are synchronized with a plant's surroundings via environmental signals, including light and temperature. We have used(More)
The circadian system induces rhythmic variation in a suite of biochemical and physiological processes that serve to optimise plant growth in diel cycles. To be of greatest utility, these rhythmic behaviors are coordinated with regular environmental changes such as the rising and setting of the sun. Photoreceptors, along with metabolites produced during(More)
The sensitivity of the circadian system to light allows entrainment of the clock, permitting coordination of plant metabolic function and flowering time across seasons. Light affects the circadian system via both photoreceptors, such as phytochromes and cryptochromes, and sugar production by photosynthesis. In the present study, we introduce a(More)
