  • In Drosophila circadian rhythms persist in constant darkness (DD). The small ventral Lateral Neurons (s-LNv) mainly control the behavioral circadian rhythm in consortium with the large ventral Lateral Neurons (l-LNv) and dorsal Lateral Neurons (LNd). It is believed that the molecular oscillations of clock genes are the source of this persistent behavior. Indeed the s-LNv, LNd, Dorsal Neurons (DN)-DN2 and DN3 displayed self-sustained molecular oscillations in DD both at RNA and protein levels… CONTINUE READING
