The LATE ELONGATED HYPOCOTYL (LHY) and CIRCADIAN CLOCK ASSOCIATED (CCA1) genes encode related MYB transcription factors, which regulate circadian rhythms in Arabidopsis. LHY and CCA1 verify some of the properties of oscillator components, since (i) expression of their transcripts and protein exhibit circadian oscillations; (ii) their constitutive expression abolishes overt rhythmicity and (iii) they function as components of a negative transcriptional feedback loop. So, LHY and CCA1 have been proposed to function as components of the circadian oscillator. The current work indicates that they may directly regulate expression of a subset of clock-controlled genes, and that the regulation of their transcripts and protein levels in response to light signals may mediate the regulation of the circadian clock by light.
