Latest Bacterial circadian rhythms Stories
Research led by the University of Warwick’s Systems Biology Centre and Warwick Medical School in collaboration with groups in Nice and Rotterdam has been able to demonstrate how the cycle of cell division in mammalian cells synchronises with the body’s own daily rhythm, its circadian clock.
Human skin must cope with UV radiation from the sun and other harmful environmental factors that fluctuate in a circadian manner.
The circadian clock rhythms that help govern biological, hormonal and behavioral patterns in the human body are altered at the cellular level in people suffering from depression, according to new research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
The Myc oncogene can disrupt the 24-hour internal rhythm in cancer cells. Postdoctoral fellow Brian Altman, PhD, and graduate student Annie Hsieh, MD, both from the in the lab of Chi Van Dang, MD, PhD, director of the Abramson Cancer Center, Abramson Family Cancer Research Institute, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, present their data in the "Metabolic Pathway Regulation in Cancer" session at the 2013 American Association for Cancer Research meeting, Washington, D.C.,...
When Thomas Edison tested the first light bulb in 1879, he could never have imagined that his invention could one day contribute to a global obesity epidemic.
A new Northwestern University study shows that the biological clock is not the only clock women trying to conceive should consider.
Scientists know that plants can actually "sense" day length, and "schedule" their growth to coincide with specific environmental conditions.
Yale University researchers have identified a key genetic gear that keeps the circadian clock of plants ticking, a finding that could have broad implications for global agriculture.
The mechanism that controls the internal 24-hour clock of all forms of life from human cells to algae has been cracked by researchers.
Itâ€™s just a worm, a tiny soil-dwelling nematode worm â€“ but the implications are big for biomedicine and circadian biology as shown in a recent study authored by University of Nevada, Reno researcher Alexander van der Linden.
