New York University College of Dentistry researchers provide first experimental evidence of a new multidien chronobiological rhythm responsible for regulating the pace of growth and development in large mammals. Through metabolomic analysis of blood plasma, researchers have for the first time linked these variations to another biological timing mechanism operating on multi-day rhythms of growth and degradation. This study builds upon earlier dental research that observed multi-day biological rhythms within incremental growth lines in tooth enamel and skeletal bone tissue.
