Post-transcriptional regulation of circadian rhythms in plants
Circadian rhythms allow organisms to adjust biological processes to occur at the most appropriate time of day. They are controlled by a complex gene network — called the central oscillator—, in which genes interact mainly by transcriptional feedback loops, keeping an approximate 24h rhythm. Growing evidence supports the importance of post-transcriptional regulation as a key step for the correct oscillation of the clock. We showed that core components of the spliceosome and mRNA decay machinery contribute to the fine-tuning of circadian rhythms in plants.
