  1. 1. Multiple neurotransmitter inputs modulate circadian clock neurons in Drosophila

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Zoologiska institutionen

    Author : Yasutaka Hamasaka; Dick Nässel; François Rouyer; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; circadian; Drosophila; neurotransmitter; G-protein coupled receptor; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Neurobiology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Neurobiologi;

    Abstract : Most animals have endogenous circadian clocks, which drive daily rhythms in behavior and physiology to adapt to daily cycles of the environment. Several sets of neurons have been identified as circadian pacemakers (clocks) in the brain of Drosophilamelanogaster, but the neuronal circuits and neurotransmitters signalling circadian information are poorly known.

  2. 2. Circadian Rhythms in Moth Sex Pheromone Communication

    University dissertation from Chemical Ecology and Ecotoxicology, Department of Biology, Lund University

    Author : Germund von Wowern; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physiology of invertebrates; växtparasitologi; Entomologi; plant parasitology; Entomology; Ecology; Ekologi; locomotor activity; social synchronisation; PDH; corazonin; PBAN; pheromone response; sex phermone; Lepidoptera; Ryggradslösa djurs fysiologi; calling behaviour; circadian rhythm;

    Abstract : Sex pheromone communication and related physiological processes are regulated by circadian clock mechanisms in many moth species. This thesis includes studies of circadian rhythms in sexually relevant behaviours and communication in the Egyptian cotton leafworm Spodoptera littoralis, the turnip moth Agrotis segetum, the Indian meal moth Plodia interpunctella and the Mediterranean flour moth Ephestia kuehniella.

  3. 3. The circadian clock in annuals and perennials coordination of Growth with Environmental Rhythms

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet, Institutionen för fysiologisk botanik

    Author : Mikael Johansson; Maria E. Eriksson; Paul Devlin; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; circadian clock; arabidopsis; populus; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Molekylärbiologi; TECHNOLOGY Bioengineering Plant biotechnology; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Bioteknik Växtbioteknik; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Organism biology Plant physiology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Organismbiologi Växtfysiologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : Since the first signs of life on planet earth, organisms have had to adapt to the daily changes between light and dark, and high and low temperatures. This has led to the evolution of an endogenous time keeper, known as the circadian clock. READ MORE

  4. 4. Studies on Natural Variation and Evolution of Photoperiodism in Plants

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Karl Holm; Ulf Lagercrantz; Martin Lascoux; Seth Jon Davis; [2010]
    Keywords : photoperiodism; circadian; flowering time; natural variation; evolution; Caspella bursa-pastoris; Physcomitrella patens; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär funktionsgenomik; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Functional Genomics;

    Abstract : Photoperiodism refers to the organism’s ability to detect and respond to seasonal changes in the daily duration of light and dark and thus constitutes one of the most significant and complex examples of the interaction between the organism and its environment. This thesis attempts to describe the prevalence of variation in a photoperiodic response, its adaptive value, and its putative genetic basis in a common cruciferous weed, Capsella bursa-pastoris (Brassicaceae).

  5. 5. Biological Rhythms of Pancreatic Secretion in Young Pigs with empahasis to the time around weaning

    University dissertation from Department of Animal Physiology, Lund University

    Author : Mary-Jane Sebabatso Thaela; [1997]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Volume; Ultradian; Protein; Pancreas; Pig; IRCT; Insulin; Infradian; Glucose; Circadian; Chymotrypsin; Biologic week and Half-week; Chronome; Animal physiology; Djurfysiologi;

    Abstract : When the time structure (chronome) of pancreatic secretion was studied after weaning in 5-week-old pigs, the zero-amplitude (no-rhythm) assumption was rejected for the about-weekly (circaseptan, CS) and about-half-weekly (circasemiseptan, CSS) chronome components. When the data were assessed individually on a day-to-day basis, a 24-hour component was suggested (P. READ MORE
