Studies on the circadian rhythm of conidiation in the bd strain of Neurospora crassa Shear and Dodge have shown that temperature step-up and step-down perturbations produce phase advances and delays, respectively. Pulse-up and pulse-down treatments lead to both phase advances and delays. The resulting phase shifts can be very large, and few to no transients are observed.Small amplitude temperature cycles are capable of entraining the circadian rhythm, and holding bd at low temperatures appears… CONTINUE READING
