Sunday September 23, 2012 15:15 - 15:45 @ Rhodes 6   Using seasonal temperature cues to ensure flowering in spring Abstract: Seasonal rhythms in flowering are the result of plants using photoperiodic and temperature cues to judge when to flower. Monitoring and integrating these environmental cues enables flowering to occur in favourable conditions so maximising reproductive success.  The acceleration of flowering by... Read More →

Sunday September 23, 2012 15:45 - 16:00 @ Rhodes 6    Paraspeckles display a circadian expression pattern in the somatolactotrope GH4C1 cell line Abstract: Paraspeckles are nuclear bodies built on a long non-coding RNA, Neat1, which assembles various protein components including the RNA-binding proteins NONO, SFPQ, PSPC1 and RBM14. Paraspeckles are believed to control gene expression through retention of A-to-I edited RNAs in... Read More →

Sunday September 23, 2012 15:00 - 15:15 @ Rhodes 6    Study of putative interactions between the embryo segmentation clock and molecular players of the circadian clock Abstract: Timing is essential for proper embryonic development. It has been shown the presence of periodic gene expression during embryogenesis, with a 90min period in somitogenesis and 6h in the limb, in the chick. These oscillations give the notion of time...

Sunday September 23, 2012 14:30 - 15:00 @ Rhodes 6    Circadian pacemaker and oscillator of cyanobacteria installed in KaiC protein Abstract: We reconstituted the self-sustained circadian oscillation in phosphorylation state of the cyanobacterial clock protein KaiC by incubating it with KaiA, KaiB, and ATP. This in vitro oscillation persisted robustly and the period was compensated against temperature changes.  As the KaiC... Read More →

University of Geneva - Sciences II
Sunday September 23, 2012 16:00 - 16:30 @ Rhodes 6    Signaling within the mammalian circadian timing system Abstract: Cell-autonomous and self-sustained circadian oscillators are operative in virtually all body cells of mammalian organisms. These clocks are synchronized directly and indirectly by a master pacemaker residing in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) of the brain. Feeding rhythms (imposed by rest activity cycles...
