Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Recent advances in the molecular analysis of biological timing have appeared to bring us closer to an answer to the 'big question', namely, 'What is the timing mechanism that enables an organism to measure the circadian (around 24 h) period?'. In this minireview, we consider the validity of the fashionable concept that autoregulatory feedback loops, centered on transcription, form the basis of the clock, and we offer a fresh view of recent progress as it relates to mammalian systems.
