Circadian clocks regulate the daily timing of metabolic, physiological, and behavioral activities to adapt organisms to day-night cycles. In the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana, transcript-translational feedback loops (TTFL) constitute the circadian clock, which is conserved among flowering plants. Arabidopsis TTFL directly regulates key genes in the clock-output pathways, whereas the pathways for clock-output control in other plants is largely unknown. Here, we propose that the… Expand

Genome-wide identification of CCA1 targets uncovers an expanded clock network in Arabidopsis
A genome-wide characterization of the direct targets of a key clock component in Arabidopsis revealed several CCA1 targets that do not cycle in either LL or LD conditions, suggesting that C CA1 plays an important role in regulating a large subset of the rhythmic transcriptome. Expand
Direct regulation of abiotic responses by the Arabidopsis circadian clock component PRR7.
Findings indicate that PRR7 is important for cyclic gene expression by repressing the transcription of morning-expressed genes, and it is observed that PRr7 is involved in the oxidative stress response and the regulation of stomata conductance. Expand
