Biological clocks are genetically encoded oscillators that allow organisms to anticipate changes in the light–dark environment that are tied to the rotation of Earth. Clocks enhance fitness and growth in prokaryotes, and they are expressed throughout the central nervous system and peripheral tissues of multicelled organisms in which they influence sleep, arousal, feeding and metabolism. Biological clocks capture the imagination because of their tie to geophysical time, and tools are now in hand… 
A new link between plant metabolism and circadian rhythms?
TLDR
Circadian regulation enables organisms to anticipate environmental changes such as dawn and dusk, and co-ordinate their metabolism, physiology and behaviour with daily changes in the environment, particularly important for plants, which cannot move to escape environmental challenges.
Redox and Metabolic Oscillations in the Clockwork
TLDR
This work has shown that a novel mechanism based on metabolic cycles may underlie circadian transcriptional and cytosolic rhythms, making it difficult to know where one oscillation ends and the other begins.
Metabolic and nontranscriptional circadian clocks: eukaryotes.
TLDR
mounting evidence is questioning the absolute necessity of transcription-based oscillators for circadian rhythmicity, supported by the recent discovery of oxidation-reduction cycles of peroxiredoxin proteins, which persist even in the absence of transcription.
Metabolic compensation and circadian resilience in prokaryotic cyanobacteria.
TLDR
It is suggested that temperature compensation is actually a subset of a larger phenomenon, namely metabolic compensation, which maintains the frequency of circadian oscillators in response to a host of factors that impinge on metabolism and would otherwise destabilize these clocks.
Circadian redox oscillations and metabolism
Research Progress on Circadian Rhythms in Plants
TLDR
The modulatory relationship between plant biological clock and photosynthesis metabolites indicates the potential advantage of biological rhythm theory in agricultural applications.
The molecular basis of metabolic cycles and their relationship to circadian rhythms

TLDR
The molecular basis of the metabolic and gene-expression oscillations in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae are explored, as well as how they relate to other biological time-keeping mechanisms, such as circadian rhythms.
Metabolic rhythms: A framework for coordinating cellular function

  • 2018
TLDR
Features of yeast respiratory oscillations are described, which share many features with daily and 12 hr cellular oscillations in animal cells, and this relatively simple system enables the analysis of dynamic rhythmic changes in metabolism, independent of Cellular oscillations that are a product of the circadian transcription‐translation feedback loop.
The circadian system as an organizer of metabolism.
Circadian clock, nutrient quality, and eating pattern tune diurnal rhythms in the mitochondrial proteome
TLDR
Daily rhythms in liver arising from synergistic action of both the cell-autonomous circadian clock and feeding–fasting driven molecular programs are thought to temporally coordinate metabolism to the appropriate time of the day to sustain metabolic homeostasis.

Light-Driven Changes in Energy Metabolism Directly Entrain the Cyanobacterial Circadian Oscillator
TLDR
It is shown that changes in illumination that induce a phase shift in cultured cyanobacteria also cause changes in the ratio of ATP to adenosine diphosphate, and a mathematical model constrained by data shows that this effect is sufficient to quantitatively explain entrainment of the cyanobacterial circadian clock.
Peroxiredoxins are conserved markers of circadian rhythms
TLDR
It is shown that oxidation–reduction cycles of peroxiredoxin proteins constitute a universal marker for circadian rhythms in all domains of life, by characterizing their oscillations in a variety of model organisms and exploring the interconnectivity between these metabolic cycles and transcription–translation feedback loops of the clockwork in each system.
Stopping time: the genetics of fly and mouse circadian clocks.
TLDR
Transcript analyses have indicated that circadian clocks are not restricted to neurons but are found in several tissues, and Comparisons between flies and mice highlight important differences in molecular circuitry and circadian organization.
Circadian rhythms persist without transcription in a eukaryote
TLDR
Non-transcriptional mechanisms are sufficient to sustain circadian timekeeping in the eukaryotic lineage, although they normally function in conjunction with transcriptional components, and oxidation of peroxiredoxin proteins is identified as a transcription-independent rhythmic biomarker, which is also rhythmic in mammals.
AMPK Regulates the Circadian Clock by Cryptochrome Phosphorylation and Degradation
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the nutrient-responsive adenosine monophosphate–activated protein kinase (AMPK) phosphorylates and destabilizes the clock component cryptochrome 1 (CRY1), which acts as chemical energy sensors in mammals.
Circadian Clocks in Human Red Blood Cells
TLDR
It is found that peroxiredoxins, highly conserved antioxidant proteins, undergo ∼24-hour redox cycles, which persist for many days under constant conditions (that is, in the absence of external cues) and are entrainable and temperature-compensated, both key features of circadian rhythms.
Feedback of the Drosophila period gene product on circadian cycling of its messenger RNA levels
TLDR
Observations indicate that the cycling of per-encoded protein could result from per RNA cycling, and that there is a feedback loop through which the activity of each per gene product causes cycling of its own RNA.
Network Features of the Mammalian Circadian Clock
TLDR
This work developed a novel strategy termed Gene Dosage Network Analysis (GDNA) in which small interfering RNA-induced dose-dependent changes in gene expression were used to build gene association networks consistent with known biochemical constraints, and uncovered several novel network features of the circadian clock, including proportional responses and signal propagation through interacting genetic modules.
Reconstitution of Circadian Oscillation of Cyanobacterial KaiC Phosphorylation in Vitro
TLDR
The self-sustainable oscillation of KaiC phosphorylation in vitro is reconstituted by incubating KaiC with KaiA, KaiB, and adenosine triphosphate and the enigma of the circadian clock can now be studied in vitro by examining the interactions between three Kai proteins.
