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)
APRR1 (ARABIDPSIS PSUEDO-RESPONSE REGULATOR 1) (or TOC1, TIMING OF CAB EXPRESSION 1) is believed to be a crucial component of biological clocks of Arabidopsis thaliana. Nevertheless, its molecular function remains to be fully elucidated. Based on the results of yeast two-hybrid and in vitro binding assays, we previously showed that APRR1/TOC1 interacts with(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)

Bacteria have devised sophisticated His-Asp phosphorelay 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 His-Asp phosphorelay signaling in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes implies that it is a powerful device for a(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)
Circadian clocks generate 24-h rhythms that are entrained by the day/night cycle. Clock circuits include several light inputs and interlocked feedback loops, with complex dynamics. Multiple biological components can contribute to each part of the circuit in higher organisms. Mechanistic models with morning, evening and central feedback loops have provided a(More)
In Arabidopsis thaliana, a number of clock-associated protein factors have been identified. Among them, TOC1 (TIMING OF CAB EXPRESSION 1) 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 REGULATOR, including PRR1/TOC1, PRR3, PRR5, PRR7 and PRR9. It has not been(More)
The plant circadian clock generates rhythms with a period close to 24 h, and it controls a wide range of physiological and developmental oscillations in habitats under natural light/dark cycles. Among clock-controlled developmental events, the best characterized is the photoperiodic control of flowering time in Arabidopsis thaliana. Recently, it was also(More)
Arabidopsis PSEUDO RESPONSE REGULATOR (PRR) genes are components of the circadian clock mechanism. In order to understand the scope of genome-wide transcriptional regulation by PRR genes, a comparison survey of gene expression in wild-type Arabidopsis and a prr9-11 prr7-10 prr5-10 triple mutant (d975) using mRNA collected during late daytime was conducted(More)
