Woller, A.; Gonze, D. Circadian Misalignment and Metabolic Disorders: A Story of Twisted Clocks. Biology 2021, 10, 207. https://doi.org/10.3390/biology10030207AMA Style Simple Summary In mammals, many physiological processes follow a 24 h rhythmic pattern. These rhythms are governed by a complex network of circadian clocks, which perceives external time cues (notably light and nutrients) and adjusts the timing of...

de Assis, L.V.M., Oster, H. The circadian clock and metabolic homeostasis: entangled networks. Cell. Mol. Life Sci. (2021). https://doi.org/10.1007/s00018-021-03800-2 Abstract The circadian clock exerts an important role in systemic homeostasis as it acts a keeper of time for the organism. The synchrony between the daily challenges imposed by the environment needs to be aligned with biological processes...

Sommer AP. Mitochondrial solar sensitivity: evolutionary and biomedical implications. Ann Transl Med. 2020 Mar;8(5):161. doi: 10.21037/atm.2019.11.100. PMID: 32310246; PMCID: PMC7154450. Depending on cellular demand or oxidative stress, mitochondria produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP) or reactive oxygen species (ROS), thereby controlling the entire scale of cellular energy supply or disease, respectively. While deficiency in ROS can compromise...
