摘要:

The methyl cycle is the core of 1-carbon metabolism and is essential not only for biological transmethylations but also for the regulation of the REDOX potential and for the synthesis of nucleotides and polyamines. This metabolic hub requires essential nutrients including methionine, choline and vitamin B9. Since its inception, our laboratory has been focusing on understanding the link between the methyl cycle and biological rhythms. Biological rhythms involve transcription-translation feedback loops of clock genes regulating the expression of many output genes underlying rhythmic physiology and behavior. These transcription-translation feedback loops are themselves regulated by epigenetic methylations at the level of DNA, histones and mRNA, and are thus the perfect system to study how genetic and dietary disruptions of the methyl cycle impact on our biology. This lecture will provide the fundamentals on biological rhythms and 1-carbon metabolism, then present the insights we have gained in the course of our past and current investigations.
