Low temperature nullifies the circadian clock in cyanobacteria through Hopf bifurcation [Biophysics and Computational Biology]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Wed, 05/17/2017 - 12:51
Cold temperatures lead to nullification of circadian rhythms in many organisms. Two typical scenarios explain the disappearance of rhythmicity: the first is oscillation death, which is the transition from self-sustained oscillation to damped oscillation that occurs at a critical temperature. The second scenario is oscillation arrest, in which oscillation terminates...
