Abstract

The animal circadian pacemaker is composed of two transcriptional feedback loops, which regulate electrical activity in circadian neurons. Surprisingly, a new study reports that electrical activity can reprogram circadian transcription, and identifies CREB proteins as candidates for this reprograming.
