    Daily blood feeding rhythms of laboratory-reared North American Culex pipiens

    Blood feeding by free-living insect vectors of disease is rhythmic and can be used to predict when infectious bites will occur. These daily rhythms can also be targeted by control measures, as in insecticide-t...

    Daily cycling of nitric oxide synthase (NOS) in the hippocampus of pigeons (C. livia)

    Nitric oxide synthase (NOS) is essential for the synthesis of nitric oxide (NO), a non-conventional neurotransmitter with an important role in synaptic plasticity underlying processes of hippocampus-dependent ...

    Synaptophysin is involved in resetting of the mammalian circadian clock

    Mammals can adapt to changing light/dark conditions by advancing or delaying their circadian clock phase. Light pulses evoke changes in gene expression and neuronal activity in the suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN)...

    An out-of-lab trial: a case example for the effect of intensive exercise on rhythms of human clock gene expression

    Although out-of-lab investigation of the human circadian clock at the clock gene expression level remains difficult, a recent method using hair follicle cells might be useful. While exercise may function as an...

    Circadian behavior of mice deficient in PER1/PML or PER2/PML

    Our recent studies demonstrate that the murine homolog of the human tumor suppressor promyelocytic leukemia (PML) regulates circadian behavior of mice. To further gather insight into PML’s contribution to circ...

    Diurnal and nutritional adjustments of intracellular Ca2+ release channels and Ca2+ ATPases associated with restricted feeding schedules in the rat liver

    Intracellular calcium is a biochemical messenger that regulates part of the metabolic adaptations in the daily fed-fast cycle. The aim of this study was to characterize the 24-h variations of the liver ryanodi...
