At temperate latitudes, increases in day length in the spring promote the summer phenotype. In mammals, this long-day response is mediated by decreasing nightly duration of melatonin secretion by the pineal gland. This affects adenylate cyclase signal transduction and clock gene expression in melatonin-responsive cells in the pars tuberalis of the pituitary, which control seasonal prolactin secretion. To define the photoperiodic limits of the mammalian long day response, we transferred short… CONTINUE READING
