Circadian clocks in crustaceans: identified neuronal and cellular systems.

  title={Circadian clocks in crustaceans: identified neuronal and cellular systems.},
  author={Johannes Strauss and Heinrich Dircksen},
  journal={Frontiers in bioscience},
Circadian rhythms are known for locomotory and reproductive behaviours, and the functioning of sensory organs, nervous structures, metabolism and developmental processes. The mechanisms and cellular bases of control are mainly inferred from circadian phenomenologies, ablation experiments and pharmacological approaches. Cellular systems for regulation summarised here comprise the retina, the eyestalk neuroendocrine X-organ-sinus gland system, several neuropeptides such as red pigment… CONTINUE READING
