  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Behavioral and molecular genetic studies in Drosophila have led to identification of several genes involved in cir-cadian rhythms. These genes define a transcription-translation-based negative feedback loop. Some of the genes are implicated in the input or output pathways. Homologues of these genes have been found in mice and humans, suggesting that the molecular machinery of the circadian system may be conserved throughout the animal king-dom.
