About this book

Drosophila melanogaster has since the 1980s been at the centre of research in chronobiology. This book describes and evaluates all the studies carried out on the species, and discusses how these investigations have extended in various directions, including genetic and molecular approaches used on other insect species.


Introduction; Mutants Used to Identify Cells and Tissues that Mediate Inputs to Circadian Pacemakers in Drosophila; Mutatants Apparently Defective in Central-Pacemaking Functions Underlying Drosophila's Circadian Rhythmicity; Additional Mutants Found in Screen for Rhythm Variants; Additional Mutants with Defects in Daily Cycles and other Time-Based Phenotypes; Molecular Genetics of Central-Pacemaking Functions; Places and Times of Clock-Gene Expressions; Natural Variants of Clock Genes, Including Interspecific Studies; Temperature Changes and how Clock-Gene Products are Involved in Compensating for Them; Molecular Genetics of Clock Re-Setting by Environmental Stimuli; Gene-Defined Functions Connecting Central Pacemaking to Circadian Chronobiology; Conclusion
