Protein Synthesis and Temperature Compensation in Circadian Rhythmicity
In Euglena gracilis and several mutants of Neurospora crassa a correlation exists between the Q10 of the circadian rhythm and the extent to which the period of the rhythm is lengthened by inhibitors of protein synthesis. A model is proposed in which the temperature-compensation mechanism of the circadian clock includes a device to compensate for changes in the rates of protein synthesis.
