Earth’s daily rotation period encoded in an atomic-level protein structure

25 junio 2015

Scientists have demonstrated that Earth’s daily rotation period (24 hours) is encoded in the KaiC protein at the atomic level, a small, 10 nm-diameter biomolecule expressed in cyanobacterial cells.The results of this joint research will help elucidate a longstanding question in chronobiology: How is the circadian period of biological clocks determined?
