Cycling of clock genes entrained to the solar rhythm enables plants to tell time: data from Arabidopsis.

BACKGROUND AND AIMS An endogenous rhythm synchronized to dawn cannot time photosynthesis-linked genes to peak consistently at noon since the interval between sunrise and noon changes seasonally. In this study, a solar clock model that circumvents this limitation is proposed using two daily timing references synchronized to noon and midnight. Other rhythmic… CONTINUE READING
