Plant physiology, Molecular biology, Circadian clock, Omics-based biology

Nakamichi has been studying molecular mechanism underlying plant circadian clock. He found that plant specific transcriptional repressors named PSEUDO-RESPONSE REGULATORs (PRRs) act in the clock genetic circuit. By using a high-throughput DNA sequence technology (ChIP-seq) combined with genome-wide gene expression, he found that PRRs directly regulate not only clock-associated genes, but also some key genes involved in clock out-put pathways. At ITbM, he has been studying unique small molecules controlling the plant circadian clock, collaborating with the groups of Itami, Ooi, Yoshimura, Kay, and the Chemical Library Center.
