The long-standing supposition that the biological clock cannot function in cells that divide more rapidly than the circadian cycle was investigated. During exponential growth in which the generation time was 10 hours, the profile of bioluminescence from a reporter strain of the cyanobacterium Synechococcus (species PCC 7942) matched a model based on the assumption that cells proliferate exponentially and the bioluminescence of each cell oscillates in a cosine fashion. Some messenger RNAs showed… Expand
Circadian Clocks in Cyanobacteria
TLDR
The current understanding of the S. elongatus circadian oscillator, its synchronization with the environment, and its coordination with cellular activities is highlighted. Expand
Independence of Circadian Timing from Cell Division in Cyanobacteria

  • 2001
TLDR
This result indicates that the circadian timing system is independent of rhythmic cell division and suggests that the cyanobacterial circadian system is stable and well sustained under a wide range of intracellular conditions. Expand
Circadian programming in cyanobacteria.
TLDR
This work proposes a new model for the core 'clockwork' that implicates rhythmic changes in the status of the chromosome that underly the rhythms of gene expression and identifies three clock genes in the cyanobacteria. Expand

  • 2004
TLDR
A new model for the core clockwork in cyanobacteria proposes that rhythmic changes in the status of the chromosome underlie the rhythms of gene expression and confers adaptive value when different strains compete against each other. Expand
CIRCADIAN PROGRAMS IN CYANOBACTERIA
TLDR
Growth compe- tition experiments demonstrate that the fitness of cyanobacteria is enhanced when the circadian period matches the period of the environmental cycle. Expand
Cell Division Cycles and Circadian Rhythms
TLDR
Whether the cyanobacterial cells are rapidly growing or halted in their division cycle, the circadian clock appears to tick steadily and operates normally, which implies an independence of circadian timekeeping from the cell division cycle. Expand
Circadian programs in cyanobacteria: adaptiveness and mechanism.
TLDR
Three genes have been identified that specifically affect circadian phenotypes that appear to interact with each other and form an autoregulatory feedback loop in cyanobacteria. Expand
CYANOBACTERIAL CIRCADIAN RHYTHMS.
TLDR
The promise of cyanobacteria as simple models for elucidating the biological clock mechanism is being fulfilled, as mutants affected in period, rhythm generation, and rhythm amplitude, isolated through the use of real time reporters of gene expression, have implicated genes involved in these aspects of the clock.

TLDR
Development of a luminescence reporter strain of Synechococcus elongatus PCC 7942 established a model system that ultimately led to the best characterized circadian clockwork at a molecular level. Expand
The circadian clocks of plants and cyanobacteria.
TLDR
How a self-sustained oscillation is established in eukaryotic and prokaryotic models, and the polyphyletic evolution of these clock systems are discussed. Expand

TLDR
It is found that populations dividing at rates as rapid as once per 10 h manifest circadian gating of cell division, since phases in which cell division slows or stops recur with a circadian periodicity. Expand
Circadian clock mutants of cyanobacteria.
TLDR
A diverse set of circadian clock mutants was isolated in a cyanobacterial strain that carries a bacterial luciferase reporter gene attached to a clock-controlled promoter, and 5 mutants were found that show a variety of unusual patterns, including arrhythmia. Expand

TLDR
Improvements in the technique for administering the reporter enzyme's substrate (decanal) and a highly sensitive photon-counting camera allow monitoring the bioluminescence of single colonies. Expand

TLDR
The behavior of this prokaryote disproves the dogma that circadian mechanisms must be based on eukaryotic cellular organization and provides an efficient experimental system for molecular analysis of the circadian clock. Expand
A light-entrainment mechanism for the Drosophila circadian clock
TLDR
The Per–Tim complex is a functional unit of the Drosophila circadian clock, and Tim degradation may be the initial response of the clock to light. Expand
Light-Induced Degradation of TIMELESS and Entrainment of the Drosophila Circadian Clock
TLDR
It is shown that TIM protein may also couple this molecular pacemaker to the environment, because TIM is rapidly degraded after exposure to light. Expand
Regulation of the Drosophila Protein Timeless Suggests a Mechanism for Resetting the Circadian Clock by Light
TLDR
The cyclic expression of TIM protein in adult heads is shown and it lags behind peak levels of TIM RNA by several hours, suggesting that TIM mediates light-induced resetting of the circadian clock. Expand

TLDR
This survey has been made somewhat simpler due the series of excellent reviews on clocks that have appeared over the past five years and an increasing interest and appreciation of the strengths of genetics in offering a different set of tools and a different way of thinking about the problems that circadian biologists have been considering for several decades.

PER protein interactions and temperature compensation of a circadian clock in Drosophila
TLDR
Temperature compensation of circadian period in Drosophila may be due in part to temperature-independent PER activity, which is based on competition between inter- and intramolecular interactions with similar temperature coefficients. Expand
Differential expression of members of a cyanobacterial psbA gene family in response to light
TLDR
Estimation of beta-Galactosidase activities indicated differential expression of the psbA-lacZ gene fusions related to light availability in photosynthesis, suggesting differential production of the two forms of D1 in photosystem II in response to light available. Expand
