New fruit fly protein illuminates circadian response to light

...ght, the animal associates the absence of TIM with daytime hours," explains Sehgal. The mutated JET protein reduces the light-dependent degradation of TIM and the circadian response to light. Sehgal and others were able to reverse the behaviors in the jetlag flies by genetically replacing the mutated gene s...

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

...ep are way stronger when taken at night prior to a daytime recovery sleep episode than in the evening before a nocturnal sleep episode." "Caffeine makes daytime sleep episodes too shallow to override the signal from the biological clock that tells the body it s...

Scientists map air pollution using corn grown in US fields

...nts provide a cost-effective way to record average daytime conditions over several months. Plants take in carbon dioxide gas, from both background and fossil fuel sources, during photosynthesis, and it becomes part of the plant tissue.
