Flashcards in Animal circadian rhythms Deck (3)
What are features of circadian rhythms
ubiquitous, feed-forward control, controls metabolism etc., endogeneous
How does periphery-sensory modulation work?
“intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells” (ipRGCs) contain MELANOPSIN and sense light changes over time, signals via IP3 cascade like flies slowly, targets suprachiasmatic nucleus of hypothalamus
Draw out cycle of clock protein production
