Cyanobacteria such as Synechococcus elongatus PCC 7942 exhibit 24-h rhythms of gene expression that are controlled by an endogenous circadian clock that is mechanistically distinct from those described for diverse eukaryotes. Genetic and biochemical experiments over the past decade have identified key components of the circadian oscillator, input pathways that synchronize the clock with the daily environment, and output pathways that relay temporal information to downstream genes. The mechanism… CONTINUE READING
