Watching the hands of the Arabidopsis biological clock

By Seth J. Davis and A. J. (Andrew J.) Millar


Oligonucleotide and cDNA microarrays have been used to analyse the mRNA levels of 8,000 genes in Arabidopsis thaliana throughout the day/night cycle. Genes involved in signal transduction and in various metabolic pathways were found to be coordinately regulated by circadian rhythms and/or by light.\ud \u
