All organisms, from mammals to fungi, have daily cycles controlled by a tightly regulated internal clock, called the circadian clock.
Researchers at the University of Cincinnati (UC) have identified key molecular components linking circadian rhythms and cell division cycles in Neurospora crassa, providing insights that could lead to improved disease treatments and drug delivery.
UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers report that disrupting the light-dark cycle of mice increased their susceptibility to inflammatory disease, indicating that the production of a key immune cell is controlled by the body’s circadian clock.
Many factors keep us from getting a good night’s sleep. Prime culprits include overnight flights across the ocean, graveyard shifts, and stress-induced insomnia.
Inside each of us is our own internal timing device.
Disruption of two genes that control circadian rhythms can lead to diabetes.
Japanese and U.S. scientists say they've identified an enzyme that can be inhibited to extend the circadian 24-hour metabolic cycle to more than 48 hours. The scientists said the circadian clock has long been known to play a central role in regulating the daily activities of living organisms.
