Abstract

While a number of physiological and biochemical processes in plants have been found to be regulated in a circadian manner, the mechanism underlying the circadian oscillator remains to be elucidated. Advances in the identification and characterization of components of the plant circadian system have been made largely through the use of genetics in Arabidopsis thaliana. Results so far indicate that the generation of rhythmicity by the Arabidopsis clock relies on molecular mechanisms that are similar to those described for other organisms, but that a totally different set of molecular components has been recruited to perform these functions.
