An interlocking transcriptional-translational feedback loop of clock-associated genes is thought to be the central oscillator of the circadian clock in plants. TIMING OF CAB EXPRESSION1 (also called PSEUDO-RESPONSE REGULATOR1 [PRR1]) and two MYB transcription factors, CIRCADIAN CLOCK ASSOCIATED1 (CCA1) and LATE ELONGATED HYPOCOTYL (LHY), play pivotal roles(More)
We have systematically examined the mRNA profiles of 36 two-component deletion mutants, which include all two-component regulatory systems of Escherichia coli, under a single growth condition. DNA microarray results revealed that the mutants belong to one of three groups based on their gene expression profiles in Luria-Bertani broth under aerobic(More)
In higher plants, circadian rhythms are highly relevant to a wide range of biological processes. To such circadian rhythms, the clock (oscillator) is central, and recent intensive studies on the model higher plant Arabidopsis thaliana have begun to shed light on the molecular mechanisms underlying the functions of the central clock. Such representative(More)
Bacteria have devised sophisticated signaling systems for eliciting a variety of adaptive responses to their environment, which are generally referred to as the "two-component regulatory system." The widespread occurrence of the two-component systems in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes implies that it is a powerful device for a wide variety of adaptive(More)
Arabidopsis thaliana has a number of response regulators (ARRs) implicated in the histidine (His)-->aspartate (Asp) phosphorelay signal transduction. According to the current consistent model, both the type-A and type-B ARR family members play crucial roles in the cytokinin signaling circuitry. However, this higher plant has a few extra ARRs, on which no(More)
In Arabidopsis thaliana, a number of clock-associated protein components have been identified. Among them, CCA1 (CIRCADIAN CLOCK-ASSOCIATED 1)/LHY (LATE ELONGATED HYPOCOTYL) and TOC1 (TIMING OF CAB EXPRESSION 1) are believed to be the essential components of the central oscillator. CCA1 and LHY are homologous and partially redundant Myb-related DNA-binding(More)

Several Arabidopsis genes have been proposed to encode potential clock-associated components, including the Myb-related CCA1 and LHY transcription factors and a member of the novel family of pseudo response regulators (APRR1/TOC1). We previously showed that mRNAs of the APRR1/TOC1 family of genes start accumulating after dawn rhythmically and sequentially(More)
In Arabidopsis thaliana, a number of circadian-associated factors have been identified, including TOC1 (TIMING OF CAB EXPRESSION 1) that is believed to be a component of the central oscillator. TOC1 is a member of a small family of proteins, designated as ARABIDOPSIS PSEUDO-RESPONSE REGULATORS (APRR1/TOC1, APRR3, APRR5, APRR7, and APRR9). As demonstrated(More)
In Arabidopsis thaliana, AUTHENTIC RESPONSE REGULATORS (ARRs) act as downstream components of the His-to-Asp phosphorelay (two-component) signaling pathway that is propagated primarily by the cytokinin receptor kinases, AUTHENTIC HIS-KINASES (AHK2, AHK3 and AHK4/CRE1). Thus, this bacterial type of signaling system is essential for responses to a class of(More)
