The study raises some startling issues that investigated investigated using the tools generated in this work. For one, it appears that entrain light and temperature on two different clocks in C. Elegans, in contrast to the single clock in Drosophila or in mammals. The researchers also confirmed that none of the animal clock gene in C. Elegans homolog show rhythmic gene expression, possibly suggesting different underlying mechanisms. The effects on the behavioral and physiological rhythms must further.
Due due the following week in the online open-access journal PLoS Biology, identified a group of scientists Piali Sengupta and Michael Rosbash at Brandeis University led C. Elegans genes is under clock control. Elegans worms are subjected to day-night light and temperature fluctuations in the ground. While circadian rhythms have been described in behaviors such as movement and response to high salt concentrations in C. Elegans, these rhythms are quite variable. One characteristic of circadian rhythms is a robust rhythmic expression of both genes, which form the core molecular clock and clock-regulated genes, entrainer.drive behavior and other outputs.Article Issues in Neuroscience The emphasis of New Journal By Springer publishing house Springer will begin publishing a new peer-reviewed journal, of neuroethics, in March 2008. Appear times a year, there will a forum for interdisciplinary study in neuroethics and related subjects the sciences of the mind. Springer free online access to to full texts of all items in 2008 and in 2009 offer.
