Gene expression and circadian rythms
In mammals, most vital processes are subject to circadian variations. Thus sleep-wake cycles, locomotor activity, heartbeat, blood pressure, renal plasma flow, body temperature, sensorial perception, and the secretion of many hormones fluctuate during the day in an orderly fashion.
Temperature regulates splicing efficiency of the cold-inducible RNA-binding protein gene Cirbp.
