Using Per gene expression to search for photoperiodic oscillators in the hamster suprachiasmatic nucleus.

Abstract

The circadian pacemaker in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) is also believed to underlie photoperiodic (seasonal) timekeeping in mammals. This clock has been modeled as a complex pacemaker composed of two coupled circadian oscillators; variability in their mutual phase relationship could account for the ability to measure daylength, with putative morning… (More)
