Circadian expression of cone visual transduction genes and corresponding proteins correlates with circadian changes in photoresponse kinetics and visual behavior, linking circadian gene expression with physiological and behavioral rhythmicity.
Latest advances in biological timing studies substantiate an emerging concept of autonomous clocks that are normally entrained by the cell cycle and/or the circadian clock to run in synchrony, but have evolved to run independently to regulate different cellular events.
A polarized Moody/protein kinase A pathway plays an unrecognized central role in controlling the enormous cell growth and blood–brain barrier integrity in a highly coordinated spatiotemporal manner in brain homeostasis.
Time-course phosphoproteomics reveals that selective dephosphorylation is critical for directing the MI/MII transition and that, through its inherent phospho-threonine preference, PP2A-B55 imposes specific phosphoregulated behaviors that distinguish the two meiotic divisions.
Context-based object recognition causally relies on both scene- and object-selective cortex, with scene-selective cortex generating expectations (at 160-200 ms after onset) that disambiguate object representations in object-selective cortex (at 260-300 ms after onset).
