About the Project
In the model plant, Arabidopsis thaliana, an endogenous circadian rhythm is generated by a set of interlocked transcriptional feedback loops. Light directly affects the level of a number of the clock components in plants. The photoreceptors involved have been well characterised but the way in which they affect clock components is only beginning to be understood.
The transcription factors, FHY3 and FAR1, play a key role in light input to the clock positively regulating transcription of key clock components. As a result, mutant seedlings specifically display aberrant circadian rhythmicity in the light. This project will analyse the mechanism by which FHY3 and FAR1 can fine-tune the clock throughout the cycle of day and night.
