...hat are reset on a daily basis by a central master clock in the brain. The operation of the cellular clocks...the coordinated action of a limited number of core clock genes. The oscillators work like this: the cell receives a signal from the master pacemaker in the h...

Gene that makes people 'early to bed and early to rise' demystified

...und that the mutant version of the Period 2 (Per2) clock gene--which is crucial for resetting the body's central clock in response to light--cannot be chemically modified by another enzyme that controls it. That failure...

DNA ends: Common tool, different job

...his progressive shortening to a genetic biological clock that winds down over time. In fact, when telomeres reach a "critical length," the cell can no longer multiply ?a characteristic sign of cellular senescence. In certain cells, such as our germ cells or baker's yeast cells, which need to divide ind...

How does your brain tell time?

...have believed that the brain possesses an internal clock that allows it to keep track of time. Now a UCLA study in the Feb. 1 edition of Neuron proposes a new model in which a series of physical changes to the brain’s cells helps the organ to monitor the passage of time. "The value of this research lie...

Chronic jet-lag conditions hasten death in aged mice

Negative effects of caffeine are stronger on daytime sleep than on nocturnal sleep

...shallow to override the signal from the biological clock that tells the body it should be awake at this time of day," explains Dr. Carrier. "We often use coffee and other sources of caffeine during the nighttime to counteract sleepiness generated by sleep deprivation, jet lag, and shift-work. However, this...

Circadian gene helps the brain predict mealtime

...n the brain's ability to run its central circadian clock according to daylight. The researchers found that, interestingly, synchronization of timing between organs by scheduled meals is not affected by the Period 2 mutation, indicating that this gene is not crucial for scheduled food availability to af...

Protein shown to rally biological clock

...llying protein that signals the brain’s biological clock to coordinate daily rhythms in behavior and physiology. The finding clarifies the roles that both VIP and a neurotransmitter GABA play in synchronizing biological clocks, and sheds light on how mammals, in this case mice and rats. regulate circadi...

Diabetes research takes wing thanks to long-lived fruit fly

...? Perhaps it's possible to re-set the body's aging clock and maybe make someone live longer." It was Bohmann's questions about cancer-causing genes 20 years ago that led him to focus on JNK, a signaling system that plays a role not only in cancer but in many normal body processes. For several years he has...
