Experimental Approaches to Circadian Clock Mechanisms

  title={Experimental Approaches to Circadian Clock Mechanisms},
  author={Leland Endmund},
Several approaches to elucidating the nature of biological clocks, particularly circadian oscillators, have emerged over the years (Edmunds, 1983; Johnson and Hastings, 1986). These include the attempt to locate the anatomical loci responsible for generating these periodicities, efforts to trace the entrainment pathway for light signals (and other Zeitgeber) from the photoreceptor(s) to the clock itself, the experimental dissection of the clock using chemicals and metabolic inhibitors and… CONTINUE READING
