Our biological clock controls mitochondrial activity in a tissue-dependent manner

The molecular circadian clock and tissue-specific clocks

Mitochondria are the cell organelles that are responsible for the largest part of cellular energy production. Within these organelles both the tricarboxylic acid cycle (TCA cycle) and oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) are taking place. In these cycles ATP,

Do plants have brains?

Many organisms have circadian clocks. These internal clocks play essential roles for predicting day-length or seasons, and they regulate behavior and hormonal secretion in animals, and also regulating flowering time and cell elongation in plants. In animals,
