Slow dark-adaptation inDrosophila's circadian clock


In populations of the fruitflyDrosophila pseudoobscura reared at constant temperature, first under continuous light, and then transferred to continuous darkness, adult flies emerge from their pupal cases in bursts at 24-hour intervals. A brief pulse of light resets the phase of this circadian rhythm by up to ± 12 hours, depending on its energy and when it… (More)
