Chronobiological studies of prokaryotic organisms have generally lagged far behind the study of endogenous circadian clocks in eukaryotes, in which such systems are essentially ubiquitous. However, despite only being studied during the past 25 years, cyanobacteria have become important model organisms for the study of circadian rhythms and, presently, their timekeeping mechanism is the best understood of any system in terms of biochemistry, structural biology, biophysics and adaptive importance… CONTINUE READING
