Reassessing the role of a 3'-UTR-binding translational inhibitor in regulation of circadian bioluminescence rhythm in the dinoflagellate Gonyaulax.

Abstract

The nightly bioluminescence of the dinoflagellate Gonyaulax is a circadian rhythm caused by the presence in cells of specialized bioluminescent organelles, termed scintillons, containing the reaction catalyst luciferase, the substrate luciferin and a luciferin-binding protein (LBP). LBP levels increase at the start of the night phase because of increased… (More)
